First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation
A Time to Deepen and Renew

This is a precious time in your childís young faith life and we wish you all of Godís blessings as you prepare for these sacraments as a family. If you are not already an active member of our parish: this time of Holy Communion will often be a natural "comeback" moment for families, as children have reached the age where they can have a deeper understanding of spiritual things. We encourage you to use this preparation period as a time of faith renewal. Letís ensure that the day of First Holy Communion will mean more than a nice memory and a photo in a dusty album: rather, let it be the beginning of your childís frequent encounter with Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. We pray that your childís experience of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion will be a time of blessing and thanksgiving for your entire family.

PARENT INFORMATION MEETING

Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 7:00 p.m. at St Mary of the Visitation Church

This meeting is for Parents only and will be a sharing on information upon the Sacramental Preparation for this coming year including family activities and participation in Lordís Day Mass.

First Communion Registration Form

Please include $20.00 registration fee with your First Communion Registration Form. This will be applied for the expenses (First Communion materials, Retreat and Digital Group Photo). A baptismal certificate is required if your child was not Baptized at St Mary's . Registration deadline is November 1, 2017.

Please note you must be a registered family in our parish for your child to receive a Sacrament at our parish. Registration with one of our parish schools does not mean that you are registered with the parish. If you are an active practicing member of another parish, a letter of permission will be required from your Pastor. 

A parish registration form can be submit on during any of our Lord's Day Masses on at our Welcome Desk.

PREPARATION PROGRAM

An essential aspect of preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and Holy Communion is participation in the Lordís Day celebrations of Mass. Young people preparing for these Sacraments are encouraged to be a part of Visitation Kids a program exclusively for them held during the 9:30a.m. and 11:30am Mass each Lordís Day. Each child will also be given the opportunity during the year to be involved in the Presentation of the Gifts at one of the Lordís Day Masses; a schedule will be developed and shared. We will also hold parish based activities as essential elements of this preparation.

Visitation Kids

... Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven." óMatthew 19:14

With a special focus on mixing the Sunday readings with preparation for your child's First Holy Communion, this year long opportunity during our Sunday 9:30am and 11:30am Mass uses technology and some "good olde fun" to bring the Word of God alive for your child.
