Sacrament of Confirmation 2020/2021

Greetings from St. Brigid’s Catholic Church!

We would like to extend an invitation for the preparation of the Sacrament of Confirmation to your child for this coming season, 2020-2021.

It is important that we walk with our children in their journey of faith; it is a joyous obligation for parents to share the sacraments, which nourish our discipleship with the Lord. Every child, however limited, is capable of growth in holiness. At St. Brigid’s Church we also offer special catechesis programs for children with special needs in all the Sacraments.

In order for your child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation he/she must be Baptized Catholic and have had his/her First Reconciliation and First Communion and be in Grade seven or higher. A hard copy of his/her Baptismal Certificate must be provided at the time of registration.

A sponsor is to be chosen by your son/daughter. The Sponsor must be Baptized and Confirmed Roman Catholic, must be 16 years of age or older, lead a life of faith in the Church and be in good standing. The sponsor cannot be your son/daughter’s parent or legal guardian. The sponsor must provide a copy of their Confirmation Certificate in order to be a sponsor for your son/daughter.

Due to the current pandemic and the WorshipSafe guidelines provided by the Archdiocese of Toronto, the Catechesis program will be conducted online. Along with the online classes we also encourage you and your child to attend Mass on a weekly basis. Once we have determined the number of registrations, we will provide you with all the details of the online lessons. The Sacrament of Confirmation Ceremony is usually scheduled in the last week of May or first week of June. This however will depend on the state of the pandemic at that time.
