Confirmation is a
Catholic Sacrament of a mature Christian commitment
and a deepening of Baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics.
It is most often associated with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Do you want your child and/or yourself to receive a Sacrament,
such as Confirmation?
If you or your Child is in Grade 6 or older
and has received the
Sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church,
or if you are considering a Profession of Faith
and continuing the journey as a Catholic........
Preparing children and adults for a Catholic Sacrament is a group effort that involves parents,
St. Mary's Catholic Parish, and your child's School. Everyone has a role!
As a parent, you are the primary teacher of the faith for your child. As you know, the sacraments are celebrated and lived in the parish. Because of this, the preparation for the celebration of the sacraments takes place in the parish. Sacramental preparation registration takes place at the parish, not at the schools. The schools support what takes place in the home and parish and are a place for children to learn about Jesus Christ and develop a relationship with him.
As a parish community we are eager to journey
with your family during this very special time.
