First Holy Communion
If last year your child was enrolled in our First Holy Communion (through our schools or in our church catechism programs) and missed receiving the sacraments because of covid; please find information on our website about receiving them this fall at: https://stjosephmi.archtoronto.org/en/sacraments-at-st-joseph/first-holy-communion/
Thank you to all parents, children, teachers and school principals for your patience!
This section is for all those who are currently in Grade 2, and those who are in Grade 3 and 4 and above who have NOT started or completed the preparation program for First Holy Communion.
In addition to the current Grade 2’s, we realize that there are many parents of the past two batches of Grade 2’s who have decided to wait to start the preparation program until things have gotten back to a state that is more normal.
For those who feel it is time, we encourage you to register your child for the online preparation program when registration opens in the First Week of December 2021.
FOR THOSE WHO NEVER STARTED:
PARTIALLY COMPLETED OR FULLY COMPLETED?
This section is for all those who have completed most or all the preparation program for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion who are currently in Grade 3 and 4 and above.
Recognizing such a different way to end the last school year and to begin this school year, we want to thank you for encouraging your child to grow in patience while waiting for the Lord in the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
We have considered all feedback from parents and principals, and ask that parents register their own child for their class' Mass for First Holy Communion as soon as possible.
FOR THOSE WHO PARTLY/FULLY COMPLETED:
We appreciate your patience as we are trying to coordinate administration and communication with more than 320 households for this program alone. It is easier for us to communicate via this email address firstname.lastname@example.org than by phone. If you have any questions that are urgent, please email us. If you must call, please make sure you’ve read the instructions above to see if your question has already been answered above, then when you call, please make sure to select the option for the “Sacramental Coordinator.”
