Although many receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in their early teenage years, long after they have already received First Communion (Holy Eucharist), Confirmation is considered the second Sacrament of Initiation. 

In some writings, Confirmation is considered to be the “perfecting” of the Baptism, in that the Baptized are “more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.

Santa Maria Goretti parish offers sacramental preparation for children preparing for Confirmation.

Courses will begin on January 15, 2023, at Santa Maria Goretti Community Centre, 9:20 a.m., followed by Sunday Mass.  Registration is now open – forms can be downloaded  here and returned to the Parish Office.  

The celebration of Confirmation is scheduled for Saturday April 29, 2023, at the 5:00pm Mass.
