Initiation into the Church

St Clare’s School is a part of the St Bernadine’s Catholic Parish. The school works with the parish and parents to prepare the children for the parish Sacramental Program. Within the Archdiocese of Brisbane sacramental initiation is parish-oriented.
'The purpose of the Sacraments is to make people holy, to build up the Body of Christ, and to give worship to God. Because they are signs they also instruct. They not only presuppose faith, but by words and objects they also nourish, strengthen, and express it; that is why they are called ‘sacraments of faith’.  (Vatican II, SC 59)
Enrolment for the Sacramental Program
Children who will be in Year Three onwards are eligible to participate in the Sacramental Program.
