FIRST COMMUNION & CONFESSION FOR NEW CANDIDATES--PARENT INFORMATION MEETING

Information Meeting Dates for First Reconciliation & First Communion for new candidates in grades 2 and up, have yet to be determined.

EXPECTATIONS FOR YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE HOLY SACRAMENTS

Parents must commit to:

  1. Prepare your child at home to develop a deeper understanding of our Catholic faith.
  2. Ensure your child attends Weekend Mass regularly.

(PLEASE NOTE:  Sacraments may be postponed to a future time if Sacrament Candidates are not prepared or are unable to commit to our current Preparation Program & attend meetings as scheduled.)

PARENTAL COMMITMENT and CONSENT

  1. Ensuring your child attends weekly Masses.
  2. Commitment to St. David's Parish HOME INSTRUCTION PROGRAM for First Reconciliation and First Communion.  We will provide parents with a home instruction program that allows parent and child to learn together and discuss our faith.
  3. Commitment to attend meetings as outlined in the Initial Meeting.   Both parents must sign consent forms for the Parish to administer sacraments.  Where consent of one or both parents is not available, the parish will require legal documents verifying legal guardianship, etc.

BAPTISM CERTIFICATE:

To prepare to register your child for these sacraments, you will require a valid copy of your child's Catholic Baptism Certificate.  This must be attached to the registration even if your child was baptized at St. David’s Parish.   It is recommended that you locate this certificate and prepare it for registration.  If you cannot locate it, then you will need to contact the parish of your child's baptism to request a replacement.

EMAIL ADDRESS:

 Parents will need to provide us with a valid email as we often communicate through emails.
