Communion

Receiving your First Communion & First Reconciliation During COVID

I am sure your Child would like to receive their First Reconciliation and First Communion after preparing all year! These Sacraments are currently available during Morning Mass (8am Reconciliation and 8:30am Holy Mass, finished by 9am). Check the calendar below to see what days have spots available, then fill out the form with your top THREE preferred days located just below the calendar. Please note, we are sorry but all spots during weekend Masses this summer have already been filled.


 

First Communion is when a person receives the body of Christ (Holy Eucharist) for the First time and will happen during Mass. Father Saga will call the child to come to the altar before the ‘Our Father’ is said. One parent may come up with the child and please bring the candle and wear masks (both parent and child). The child will be instructed to remove the mask and blow out the candle prior to receiving Communion when the time comes.

Two children at each Morning Mass can receive these Sacraments and each family can register up to ten attendees at the Mass in advance. Additional family can register for Mass on a first come basis on the day of the Sacrament. If you have not received an email with further details, please phone the office (780) 473-4259 ext.0 email an inquiry at stdominicsavio.edm@caedm.ca

“Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism, and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation, participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.”

– The Catechism of the Catholic Church

In addition to preparation provided by the Catholic School Grade 2 program, our pastoral team helps prepare families for this sacramental celebration.  First Communion registration usually occurs early in the calendar year.
