Preparation for the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation in 2018 – 2019:
The duration of the catechism courses for each of these sacraments is 2 years. This is as prescribed by the Archdiocese of Montreal. Parents are invited to register their children by filling in the registration form for those children who have reached 2nd grade of elementary school (for First Communion) and 5th grade (for Confirmation). The form can be sent to the chuch office or left in the donation basket at the Sunday morning 10 am Mass. Paper copies of the form are available for the moment at the entrance of the church hall on one of the small tables. Electronic copies of the registration form as well as of the updated schedule will be available for downloading on this page shortly. Please take note that a recent Baptism Certificate is required if the child was not baptized at the Annunziata Mission.
Sunday Sept. 30th, 2018, there will be the first meeting with the parents after the 10 am Mass. The books for catechism will be blessed and distributed. The lessons as such will begin on Sunday Oct. 14th, 2018 after the 10 am Mass and will be held every other Sunday. The exact dates of the First communion celebration and of the Confirmation Sunday in the Spring of 2019 will be communicated shortly. Children with their parents are expected to participate to the Sunday morning 10 am Mass as part of the Catechism program.
