First Solemn Holy Communion
For those students in Grade 2 and older who are preparing to take their sacraments of First Reconciliation (confession) and First Holy Communion, classes will commence on Sunday, January 17 until March 6, 2016. First Reconciliation will be on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 9:30am and First Holy Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 10am (one Divine Liturgy).
Weekly classes are scheduled on Sunday afternoons in the Cultural Centre (Sadochok Room) from 12:30-2:30pm. Most families attend the 11am Divine Liturgy, so a light lunch will be provided for the students at 12:15pm before classes begin 12:30pm. I will be providing the first light lunch for students. Registrants are asked to sign up to bring a snack to share with others for the following weeks.
A parent letter, registration forms and a schedule of classes are available on the Parish website (www.stbasilschurch.com) under the link “Sacramental Prep”. Please submit your child’s registration form to the parish office with a copy of your child’s baptismal certificate. In addition to your child’s classes, there is 1 mandatory parent meeting to be held with Father Joseph Pidskalny. It is scheduled for Sunday, February 7 from 12:45-1:45pm in the Cultural Centre.
