Registration: First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation
Registration is now open for our children’s sacramental preparation programs. First Reconciliation and First Communion: Begins on October 14. The children gather weekly from 11:30-12:30 in the Atrium. At 12:00pm the children, accompanied by their catechists, join the larger Church community for the Eucharistic portion of the Sunday liturgy. The program extends after First Communion (May 12) to Pentecost (June 9), allowing the children time to deepen this new aspect of their relationship with Jesus, Bread of Life. Confirmation: Begins on November 25. The children gather weekly from 4:00-5:00 in Gabriel Room. At 5:00pm the children, accompanied by their catechist, join the larger Church community for the Eucharistic portion of the Sunday liturgy. The program ends on Pentecost (June 9). To help us defer the costs of the programs, there is a $100.00 registration fee, payable by cash or cheque at the start of the program. Cheques can be made payable to: St. Basil’s Catholic Parish. This financial commitment can be reduced or waived to meet your family’s budgetary concerns. PARENTAL COMMITMENT: Both program also support parents in their role as their child’s primary educator in the faith. The respective program calendars (found on our website) indicate when parents also gather together to learn and reflect how to best accompany their child in their maturing relationship with Jesus. For additional information or register your child, contact our Director of Family Ministry: firstname.lastname@example.org.
