Sacramental Preparation

A Letter from Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church

Dear Parents,

In the life of the Church, the effort to educate our children has always been seen as a cooperative of church-parish-home, with the primary educators in the faith always being the parents. The pandemic is pushing us to put that into practice, so this year we will be asking more from you the parents in preparing your children to receive the Sacraments, while still being supported by the parish along the way. We have set up a home-based program for Sacramental preparation, combined with online support for parents and a couple of socially distanced activities at the church.

You will find a schedule of events below that you will be asked to pre-register for on the parish website. Also, I would like to request that each parent sign up for “Flocknote” by texting “letuspray” to 514-900-0130. Flocknote is a texting service and allows me to send you notes and reminders during preparation. Once signed up, include yourself in the group your child belongs (i.e. “Confirmation”). You can stop the texts at any time by texting back “STOP”.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the parish 780-998-3288.

In Christ,
Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church

Sacramental Preparation 2022

Relationships are powerful.

Celebrating Sacraments deepens a child's relationship with our loving God.

Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Parish is helping families to prepare their children for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. We welcome children in grade 2 and older.

Baptism is the first Sacrament children can receive, and in order to celebrate First Reconciliation or First Eucharist, children are to be baptized first. Not baptized - No problem! Please contact OLA Catholic Parish and 780-998-3288 and they will happily help you.

Parents or guardians should register their children at the Parish Office. In preparation for their sacramental journey and to encourage relationships with Jesus and within our Parish family, each candidate is welcomed and encouraged to attend all classes on their sacramental journey.

Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Parish is now accepting registrations for sacramental preparation.  Please email or drop off completed forms with fee to the parish.

Fee of $40.00 for the two sacraments (First Reconciliation and Eucharist). Please provide a copy of the baptism certificate if not baptized in one of our parishes.

E-mail forms to olangels.ftsask@caedm.ca (We accept e-transfer of fees to the same email address.)

For those only registering for First Eucharist the fee is $20.00, please provide date and parish of Reconciliation on the registration form.
