Preparation for First Holy Communion, First Reconciliation, and the Sacrament of Confirmation

Letter to Parents and Candidates

Dear Parents and Guardians of Candidates for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist and the Sacrament of Confirmation:


In the time of pandemic we have adapted a new way of preparing for candidates of the three Sacraments that are normally received during their time in elementary school, a format which we will retain for the foreseeable future. Even though the school classroom teachers will continue to provide teaching of the sacraments as part of the grade two and grade seven religion education curriculum, the preparation here at St. Mary’s Cathedral will take place mostly in your individual homes.

The 'Blessed' Program

The Dynamic Catholic First Communion and First Reconciliation Experience. First Communion and First Reconciliation prep finally meets children where they are and leads them, step-by-step, to where God is calling them to be.

'Decision Point' Confirmation Program

DECISION POINT is the first Confirmation program specifically developed to engage young Catholics in a meaningful conversation about the genius of Catholicism. It teaches and inspires teens to respond to God’s grace, and it’s changing hundreds of thousands of young lives.
