Celebrating a Sacrament is an important step in the life of your child as a Catholic Christian. This year, your child will continue his/her faith journey in a very special way. It is a time of growth and understanding of how much mercy and love Jesus has for us.
West Middlesex Catholic Family of Parishes has made some changes to our Reconciliation and First Communion programs.
Preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered through an online home program from our website. You will be given in advance all the materials and directions that you and your child need to successfully complete the preparation for these sacraments at your own pace. The parent will be responsible for teaching the program at home.
Due to Covid-19, arrangements will be made for your child to celebrate this Sacrament of Reconciliation when it is safe to do so. Once we are out of the grey zone, you will be notified of the dates to choose from.
Please complete the registration form below. Upon completion of the form an email confirming your registration will be sent to you at the email address you include in this form.
Baptismal Certificate: A copy of the Baptismal certificate is required. You will be able to attach a copy below.
Material Fee: is $40 and covers the materials for both Reconciliation and First Communion preparation supplies. This can be paid via e-transfer (firstname.lastname@example.org , no password is required), cheque or cash. Please write Reconciliation /First Communion in the memo. If you prefer to pay in person, please phone ahead for an appointment. For those who find the fee a financial burden, please contact Father Thom directly. 519.245.0644
Program Materials: The Reconciliation Sacramental preparation material kits are available for curbside pickup once you have registered. You will receive a separate email letting you know where and when to pick the kit up.
Baptismal Candle: When your child was baptized you should have received a special baptismal candle from the church. This candle will be needed as part of the program. If you are unable to locate your candle, no worries as we have a blessed votive candle placed in your child's Reconciliation Program Material Package.
