Important Dates: Monday October 5th at 7:00 PM (Mandatory Information Session for First Reconciliation and First Communion)
Tuesday October 6th at 7:00 PM (Grade 7 Confirmation Registration)
Thursday October 8th at 7:00 PM (Grade 8 Confirmation Registration)
Students who attend our Catholic schools, public or private schools, and who wish to be prepared for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion, or Confirmation, are required to register for the sacraments through their local parish. While the priest works closely with the students and teachers at the Catholic schools, the church is the primary place of registration since the Sacraments are celebrated at the parish where the students attend Mass. Below are the dates and times for this year's Registration.
Parents/Guardians who wish to register their children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion are required to attend a Registration and Information Session at the Church on Monday October 5th at 7:00 PM. Please bring a photocopy of your child's baptismal certificate; if you do not have one, simply contact the parish where your child was baptized and they will provide you an updated one.
The Cardinal has moved the age of Confirmation to Grade 7. As such, this year, we will be preparing both the Grade 8 and Grade 7 students for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This will be a more demanding year and thus will require two separate Registration Nights. Kindly note the following dates for Registration for Confirmation, to be held at the church.
Tuesday October 6th at 7:00 PM (Grade 7)
Thursday October 8th at 7:00 PM (Grade 8)
Parents are asked to bring with them a copy of the student's baptismal certificate. If unable to find one, simply contact the church where the child was baptized and they will provide you an updated one.
At each of the Registration Nights, Fr. Pat will outline the program of study for the respective schools, and the program for those attending public schools. For students attending public schools, classes will be held at the parish church; a schedule for those classes will be provided to the parents at the Registration Night. There will be some option of dates for the celebration of the Sacraments and parents will be asked to sign up for the dates which best suit them at the Registration Nights. The following are the dates that have been approved for St. Edward's Parish:
FIRST COMMUNION MASS
