The Sacrament Preparation Program in the Diocese of Calgary is changing! His Excellency, Most Reverend William T. McGrattan, Bishop of Calgary, is bringing the parishes of the Diocese together to offer a Sacrament Preparation Program that is consistent in form and content.
All children receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion MUST FIRST receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Therefore, preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion is now combined in the same school year, beginning in September.
Children who are going to Grade 2 in the 2018-2019 school year will receive combined preparation for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion starting in September.
Children in Grade 3 and up who already received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion but have not received First Reconciliation will only need to take the first half of the combined preparation. This first half of the preparation is for Sacrament of First Reconciliation only.
All preparation sessions will be held at Ascension Catholic Parish. If you have any questions please contact Monica Purnama at email@example.com
