First Holy Communion for Grade 2 Students and up
First Reconciliation and First Communion Registration
In the coming weeks 125 children will celebrate First Communion and 85 the Sacrament of Confirmation. The celebrations will take place at our regular Sunday Masses ( 5pm, 8, 10 am 12pm ), which means that we will have a larger number of people attending each of these celebrations. We invite you to pray for these children in these final days of preparation.
We also have 85 Confirmation candidates. They have been coming preparation sessions as well as participating in a service project here at the parish. The projects are varied, and allow the candidates to answer the call to discipleship here at the parish. Some have helped in cleaning and decorating the Church, others have come and participated in the First Communion preparation and the Youth Mass. This year the Bishop will be coming to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation over two weekends , so we will have an opportunity to welcome Bishop Boissonneau later in May.
2023 Confirmation will be celebrated by Bishop John A. Boissonneau
