Do you want your child to receive

1st Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist?

Have they received the Sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church?

Is your child in Grade 2 , or older?


If you have answered YES to all these questions...


Here’s how!  Everyone has a role!


Preparing children for a Catholic Sacrament is a group effort that involves

You as Parents,

St. Mary's Catholic Parish,

Your child's School. 


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.


Please contact the parish at 403-347-3114 or charmaine.marcinek@caedm.ca for more information



Parental Expectations:

Parents must attend a Registration/Parent Information Session.

If you missed this session, please contact the parish.

(403) 347-3114 or charmaine.marcinek@caedm.ca

At least 1 parent attends all group sessions with their child.  

It is important for families to share and deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.


You are the primary educator of your child in the Sacraments.

 The parish and the schools are here to assist you in this process.  

The classes are meant to supplement what you are already doing, and will be doing, in the home.  

It is up to you as parents to work through the work book alongside your child.  

Let this be a special time for you.  Share from your own experiences and stories.  

Answer their questions and listen to their joys and struggles.  


If for any reason your are struggling with the experience of working through the materials

or helping to prepare your child for the Sacraments,

please contact the parish by phone or email, and speak to us. 


We are here to help.
