First Reconciliation & First Communion
Roman Catholic children are prepared to celebrate their First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Communion around the age of 7. If you are a parent of a 7 year old child (in grade 2) who is baptized Roman Catholic, it will be important for you to attend one of the following information meetings to learn about the preparation process, registration, and celebration of these Sacraments.
Meetings will be held in the Parish Centre on:
Sunday, September 20, 2 – 3:30 pm
Tuesday, September 22, 7:30 – 9 pm
These parent information meetings are for parishioners of St. Bonaventure Parish. If you are not registered with the parish, but worship here regularly or want to make our community your spiritual home, then you are welcome! We ask you to register your family as members of our parish by using one of the forms that you will find at the
back of the church or on our website. If you have questions contact Gregory Beath.
As of September 2015, the age to prepare for and celebrate Confirmation has been lowered to age 12 in the Archdiocese of Toronto. This means that we will prepare youth in both Grades 7 and 8 this coming year.
