Reconciliation and First Communion
The usual time for the celebration of these Sacraments is at the grade 2 level. Older children are also welcome to attend the program. The children journey in a program that helps them discover God’s forgiveness through joy, love and peace, and how in the Eucharist they are nourished by Jesus, the Bread of Life. Reconciliation prepares our hearts to receive Jesus, truly present in the Eucharist. The program is age appropriate and supported by family and parish life. Parents are an integral part of the preparation process and will help guide their children through the program. Preparation for First Reconciliation will occur in the Fall. Preparation for First Communion will occur in the Spring.
Registration for First Reconciliation and First Communion is now closed. Come back in September 2023 for the next preparation times. If you have questions, contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or the office at 306-374-1425. Thank you.
Please note that in order to be in the First Communion preparation it is required that the child has had preparation classes for Reconciliation and received the sacrament of Reconciliation.

Registration for the Sacrament of Confirmation is now open! In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the Holy Spirit completes the grace of baptism and offers the newly confirmed strength as a true witness of Christ.
In July of 2022 the decision was made in the Diocese of Saskatoon that Confirmation would be offered to youth 12 years of age (grade 6) and older. If your child received their First Communion in Saskatchewan in 2020 or earlier it is likely they received their Confirmation at that time as well. If you are unsure contact the church of Baptism.
To register your child for Confirmation please fill out the Registration Form and send it as well as a copy of your child’s Baptism Certificate to Erin at email@example.com or drop off at the church office. The registration fee is $20 and can be sent via e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org (with Sacramental Prep in the notes) or cash or cheque (made payable to Holy Spirit Parish) can be dropped off at the church office.
The schedule for Confirmation Preparation is:
Thursday, February 16th 7-8pm at the church
Thursday, March 2nd 7-8pm at the church
Thursday, March 14th 7-8pm at the church
The date for Confirmation will be sent to families in Spring 2023.
