Confirmation

GENERAL INFORMATION: Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins in September of each calendar year.   Confirmation is celebrated in Grade 7 . Students enrolled in the Catholic School system will prepare for Confirmation as part of their academic religion program. Students enrolled in a Public or Private school, must complete Catholic religious instruction. Mary Mother of God Parish offers a catechetical program through correspondence. Students who have not received catholic religious instruction between Sacrament years (Grade 2 and Grade 7) are required to complete one additional year of religious instruction (Grades 5 ) in addition to Confirmation Preparation  in order to be properly prepared to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.

 


 

Congratulations to our young boys and girls who Celebrated the Sacrament of Confirmation on January 19th & 20th.  We welcomed Grade 7 students from Holy Family, St. Gregory the Great, St. Andrew and St. Marguerite d’Youville Catholic Schools and our Parish Catechetical students.  Thank you to Bishop Douglas Crosby and Very Rev. John Van Hees for a Blessed and truly uplifting celebration.  We would also like to thank Marisa Patskou, our Parish Sacramental Co-ordinator, our Grade 7 Catholic School teachers, our Grade 7 Catechetic leaders and all parents and  volunteers who helped prepare our young people for their sacrament.  We wish them joy and peace as they continue their journey of faith!!
