Holy Rosary Church runs a catechism program, where families are welcome to bring their children and grow in their faith journey. The program offers classes from Preschool/Kindergarten to Grade 7, where children receive their sacraments of initiation (communion in grade 2, and confirmation in grade 7). Our catechism program runs from September to May. Classes are every Sunday from 11:00- 12:00 with family mass to follow. To register or find out more information please visit our catechism website.
The Sacrament of Eucharist
The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1322
Preparation for First Communion
First Communion is for candidates in grade 2 at Holy Rosary Church. It is celebrated in May, split into two weekends. This preparation also includes preparing and receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation. For information on enrolment and what is involved please visit our faith formation site. All events are announced in the Sunday Bulletin & Website weeks before.
The Sacrament of Confirmation
Confirmation perfects Baptismal grace; it is the sacrament which gives the Holy Spirit in order to root us more deeply in the divine filiation, incorporate us more firmly into Christ, strengthen our bond with the Church, associate us more closely with her mission, and help us bear witness to the Christian faith in words accompanied by deeds. – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1316
