 What is the correct age for receiving the sacraments?

There is no correct age. In this diocese sacramental preparation programmes have been traditionally offered to children from the age of 7 – 8 onwards.  Parents are the best judge of whether their child is mature enough to receive a sacrament. It is not easy to determine whether your child understands what it is they are doing. Remember understanding develops over a long period of time. The Sacramental Team can advise you if you wish to discuss readiness for the programme.  No one is too old to receive sacraments. With the appropriate preparation, any person can receive the sacraments at any age.
