Sacraments play an important role in the life of the Church. In St Raphael’s Parish, Cowra the Sacraments are facilitated through the Parish and supported by the School. In this situation it is the role of the Primary REC to assist in setting dates and ensuring the school and parish connections are maintained.
In addition to the Parish Sacramental Program the student in the relevant years (Year 2, 3 and 6) are taught the content for their specific sacrament throughout their class Religious Education Lessons.
Year 2 : Reconciliation (Generally celebrated in Term 4)
Year 3: Eucharist Jesus is with us (Generally Celebrated in Term 2 or 3)
Year 6 : Confirmation - Celebrating the Gift of the Spirit (This date changes depending on the availability of the Bishop).
