We Prepare for Reconciliation – students in grade 2 prepare and receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This program focuses on introducing children to a Christian way of life. It emphasizes the central place of Jesus in their lives and invites them into a prayerful relationship with God. It also emphasizes the virtues of love, joy, peace and forgiveness which pave the way for the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
We Share in the Eucharist: students in grade 3 prepare for and receive First Eucharist. This program focuses on First Eucharist but it also introduces children to a Christian way of life and prayer. It emphasizes the central place of Jesus as he is experienced at Sunday liturgy and invites children to become intimately acquainted with Jesus and with the Mass itself. It also emphasizes the concepts of thanksgiving, forgiveness, praise remembering, and sacrifice, which pave the way for the Sacrament. The final theme offers immediate preparation for First Communion.
Alive in the Spirit – students in 2018 will prepare in Grade 5, and in 2019 will prepare in Grade 6 and up for the Sacrament of Confirmation. This program invites candidates to grow increasingly attuned to the call God made to them since the day of their baptism. It also invites them to come to the sacrament asking for divine help when they answer the baptismal call to live their lives at the table of the Lord and to be Christ in the world
Our worship space was remodelled several years ago to reflect the desire of the Second Vatican Council which called for “the full and active” participation of all the baptized. Our inclusive seating arrangements enables all to focus on the Altar, the prime symbol of Christ and experience the call to active participation. Unlike the more traditional processional church buildings, lengthy processions or passive (theatre-like) activities are not possible. Please consider the unique structure of our worship space and allow us to help you created a beautiful wedding Liturgy. Your guests will not only witness your exchange of vows, they will be an integral part of your wedding experience.

We yearn for peace. We yearn for wholeness. But sometimes it is hard to find. So we turn to God for grace and healing.
The Anointing of the Sick is one of a healing sacraments in which the physical signs of the laying on of hands and anointing with sacred oil reveal to us the invisible reality of God’s love and strength poured out upon us.
