Registrations for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation 2018 - 2019

Do you have a child ready to receive these sacraments?

Preparing for First Reconciliation, and then First Eucharist, takes place when children are about seven years old and in Grade 2, or later. Preparing for Confirmation takes place when children are about 11 or 12 years old and in Grade 6, or later. It is never too late to prepare for and receive these sacraments.

Our Parish will start preparation programs for these sacraments in the fall. Please call or email the Parish to arrange a meeting with Sophie, the Pastoral Assistant, and you and your child to register. Meetings starting in June and during the summer months are encouraged. Your child’s Baptismal certificate will be needed, and a registration fee will help cover the costs of the programs.

The dates for the preparation sessions will be set by the end of June. A parent meeting for Reconciliation and Eucharist preparation will be held before sessions begin in October. A separate parent meeting for Confirmation will be held later.

Is your older child asking about Baptism? We can prepare your child for Baptism at any age. Please contact Sophie through email or phone for more information, and check our Parish website.

RCIA and Confirmation for Adults

Everybody is welcome, whether you are a cradle Catholic or new or newer to the faith. If you wish to receive the sacraments, please call the office, we welcome you!
