Sacramental Programme

At St Joseph's, we work closely with the parish to support our pupils and their families on their sacramental journey.


As part of Liverpool Archdiocese, the sacramental programme which children undertake during their primary school years is as follows:

  • Autumn Term - Sacrament of Reconciliation - eligible pupils in Year 4 of their primary education
  • Summer Term - Sacrament of Holy Eucharist - eligible pupils in Year 4 of their primary education


The programme for sacramental preparation in the parish is fully inclusive.  Children at the school who are not baptised Catholics are most welcome to join in the preparation programmes and receive special blessings as part of this important faith journey.


As the steps on this sacramental journey require a family commitment, the main resources used are such that they support home and parish led catechesis.


For more information, please visit the Liverpool Archdiocese website and find out more about family led catechesis and the 'With You Always' resources.
