Marriae Preparation Course

"Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion."

For Catholic Adults, this sacrament is generally given individually in the confessional room within the church if the priest is available (see Mass schedule/timing as this is done during one of the mass timings). However, in case of necessity, any priest may be contacted for an appointment.

“The reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. For by the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed."

Children receiving Confirmation have to undergo a preparation (see Details under “Catechism”). The Sacrament of Confirmation is administered only to those who are enrolled for the Catechism classes. Preparations for Confirmation begin in Grade 7 and students receive the Sacrament of Confirmation usually during Pentecost which coincides with the end of Grade 8. Classes resume on 02-October 2015...New registrations to Classes will be announced.

Catholic adults (baptized but NOT confirmed), Please contact the parish office for details when this Sacrament is given as they conduct it in a group who have to undergo a short one week evening preparatory course prior to this Sacrament being administered. Adult Confirmation courses for those who are baptized Catholic but have not received the sacrament of Confirmation are conducted three times a year during the months of January, May, and September. Classes are typically scheduled for the 3rd week of the month. Nightly sessions are conducted 7:00pm-9:30 Sunday through Thursday evenings and candidates must attend all 5 nightly sessions.
