CONFIRMATION PREPARATION PROGRAMME 2022-2023
We invite parent(s)/guardian(s) of children in grade 7 or 8 who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in 2023, to register for our sacramental preparation programme.
Registration will be open on-line:
Monday, October 3, 2022 to Monday, October 31, 2022 (unless capacity is reached earlier.) Registration is open to parishioner families. Students from our parish schools (St. Cecilia and St. Rita) who aren't St. Cecilia parishioners are welcome to prepare here, but need to submit a letter of permission from their home pastor in order to do so.
To register, complete the Registration Form here. .
Also Required by October 31, 2022:
- A copy of your child's Baptism Certificate (if not baptised at St. Cecilia Church). You may email it to the parish office: email@example.com
- The $50 programme fee. Payable by cash or cheque (to St. Cecilia's Church). This must be dropped off at the parish office: 161 Annette Street - the house just east of the Church.
Please include the child's full name and indicate the Sacrament for which they are preparing.
Please note that there is never a charge for Sacraments. The fee is for resource material.
We appreciate your assistance with this. Please advise the office if this poses a burden as we do not want anyone to be excluded for financial reasons.
The programme consists of an initial meeting, enrolment ceremony, 7 Tuesday evening classes, Sunday 11 a.m. Mass attendance, Saturday Retreat in Lent, Confirmation Rehearsal with sponsors, and the Confirmation Mass.
