After Baptism, your child will continue through the Sacraments on their way to understanding and living the Catholic faith. After Baptism, your child will be Confirmed (usually around 8yrs of age). After Confirmation, your child will receive First Holy Communion (usually around 9yrs of age). And finally, your child will have receive Penance (usually around 10yrs of age). This process has been agreed upon by the Archdiocese of Brisbane (see their policy below). Contact the parish email@example.com
