We welcome families who are interested in being part of our Sacramental programme. As part of this programme, families will need to be registered as parishioners of Sacred Heart, Thornlie. To do so, please contact the Parish Office on 08 9459 4459.

SACRAMENT OF ANOINTING – At Sacred Heart, Sacrament of Anointing happens on the 1st Friday of the month at 8:45am during mass.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM: Preparing children for the Sacraments – Our parish runs an extensive after school Religious Education Program for those children in years 1 to 6 that are not attending Catholic Schools. The program also prepares children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation. Classes run each Wednesday during the school term starting at 4:00pm. For enquiries please contact Jeanie Willock on 9459 4145.

RCIA: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults – Preparing adults to enter the Catholic faith. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) has been established as the means by which a person can explore the faith of the Catholic Church. It offers a way to grow in the knowledge of Christ, and the Catholic faith, in company with others on a similar journey. The RCIA takes place within a parish community so you are able to share in the life of the Church expressed in a local parish. If you are interested or know someone who is interested, please contact Nolan Stephenson on 9398 5237 or Anne Kennedy on 9459 4985 for more information.

FUNERALS: A funeral is a ceremony for celebrating, respecting, sanctifying, or remembering the life of a person who has died. At Sacred Heart we aim to provide quality funeral service and facilities with respect, care and understanding for the families we serve. For more information please contact our Priests on 08 9459 4459 for assistance.

MEMORIAL GARDENS: Our church has on location four Memorial Garden blocks which provide a resting place for the interment of ashes. Due to the limited availability, plots are only available for current parishioners of Sacred Heart Parish Thornlie. For more information, please contact the Parish Office on 9459 4459.
