The Sacraments


If you wish to have your child baptised, we have parent preparations sessions for you. Collect a form from the parish office, fill it in and return it and book an appointment with Fr Sunny and arrange a date and time for the baptism, usually Saturday mornings at Childers and during Mass at Biggenden and Gin Gin on Sundays.

Collect a Baptism Information Package and contact one of the Sacramental Team members to arrange an appointment for the preparation session. A fee of $50 must be paid when the application form is returned and parents are required to attend at least three Masses before the Baptism date.




Please contact the parish office to make arrangements.






Sacramental Program



Sacramental Preparation Programme

Preparation programs for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion and Confirmation are conducted at Childers annually in co-operation with St Joseph’s School.  Programs are also offered at Gin Gin each year.

The Sacramental Team assists with preparation classes for parents and children over 5 weeks. Children in Year 2 who have been baptized are eligible for First Reconciliation and children from Yr 3 onwards are eligible for Confirmation and First Eucharist.



Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

This program is run as required. Please contact the Parish office for details.


Annointing of the Sick

Fr Sunny is very happy to visit the sick, housebound or hospitalized for anointing or Holy Communion or just a friendly hello.



Please contact Fr Sunny for funeral enquiries or arrangements. The Childers Catholic Women’s League will pray the Rosary before Funerals if requested, just arrange with Fr Sunny.



For more information about the Sacraments please refer to the Archdiocese of Brisbane website.
