Sacramental Preparation

Children's preparation for Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation
  • Our sacramental preparation programs have two components:
    • a series of sessions attended by the child and at least one parent, and
    • a workbook used at home by the families to enhance the experiences of the sessions.
  • Preparation sessions are held on Monday evenings from 6:30 - 7:30 pm.
  • By participating in the sessions and working with their child at home, parents are also able to gain a greater understanding of the preparation process.
  • For more information, or to register, please contact Theresa Hill 


  • There are three sessions for Reconciliation in October - November.
  • The sacrament of Reconciliation takes place in Grade 2. (Children must be registered in Grade 2 catechism, and have participated in Grade 1 classes.)
