Sacramental Program

At Emmaus, sacramental preparation for students is school based and celebrations occur at both St. Alipius Parish, Ballarat East and St Peter and Paul's Parish, Buninyong.

All students in Year 3 who have received the Sacrament of Baptism, are welcome to enrol and present for the Sacrament of Confirmation (during September).

All students in Year 4 who have received the Sacrament of Baptism and the Sacrament of Confirmation are welcome to enrol and present for the Sacrament of Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation (during July).

Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist lay the foundations of every Christian life. From the waters of Baptism, we receive in the Eucharist the food of eternal life and are strengthened by the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Families are encouraged to contact the office early in the year to enrol in the Sacramental Program, which consists of evening preparation and formation sessions.
