Greetings from St. Brigid’s Catholic Church!
We would like to extend an invitation for the preparation of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion 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.
Due to the current pandemic and the WorshipSafe guidelines provided by the Archdiocese of Toronto, the Catechesis program will be conducted online. Once we have determined the number of registrations, we will provide you with all the details of the online lessons and ceremony dates. There will be 12 lessons and along with the lessons, we also encourage you and your child to also attend Mass on a weekly basis. The Sacrament of Reconciliation Ceremony is usually scheduled in mid-April and the First Holy Communion ceremony in early May. This however will depend on the state of the pandemic at that time.
