Registration for First Communion & Confirmation

 

Preparation for First Confession/First Communion and Confirmation will be starting shortly.  If your child/children are interested in receiving these sacraments, I invite you to contact the parish office for a registration form and further information.   holyname@xplornet.com   or   613-396-2846 

 

*Please note that the Archbishop will again be coming to the parish to celebrate Confirmations.  Because of the declining number of students desiring Confirmation, we will be moving to only having Confirmations every other year.  This means that our

parishes will not offer Confirmation in 2024.  If your child/children are in grade 5 or 6 and would like to be Confirmed this year instead of waiting two years, please speak with Father Francis to make arrangements. 

Adoration Chapel

Looking for a chance to step away from the noise and busyness of your day to spend some quiet time with Jesus, present in the Eucharist?  Consider signing up to cover an hour in the Adoration Chapel at Holy Name of Mary church.  Please contact the office if you are interested or would like to learn more and someone will get in touch with you to answer your questions and see what day and time would work best for you.

Listening to Indigenous Voices, a resource published by the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice explores Indigenous worldviews, examines the history of colonization, and concludes with sessions on righting relationships, decolonization, and indigenization. This resource seeks to bring groups together in a process of dialogue on the history and issues facing Indigenous Canadians in the spirit of truth and reconciliation.

Using these books as a guide, participants would meet for 11 sessions for discussion on the content of this resource. Each session includes questions to guide sharing circles. We invite you to organize small groups within your parish.

If parishes are interested in organizing small group discussions around this resource please contact Gorett at pastoralservices@archkingston.ca or 613-548-4461 ext. 112.
