First Reconciliation"To celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation means to be wrapped in a warm embrace."
In the Diocese of Calgary, children receive the Sacrament of First Reconciliation when they are in Grade 2, prior to receiving their First Eucharist.
For 2021/2022 session the diocese of Calgary will return to parish-based sacraments preparations.
The Sacrament preparation process at the parish consists of the following:
- Parent Information Session to further to further explain the Sacrament Preparation Program and how you can continue to support your child’s faith development. It will be held on Saturday, September 18th at 9:30 am.
