First Reconciliation and First Communion UPDATE - November 10, 2022

 

Dear First Reconciliation/First Communion Families,

In preparation for your child’s reception of the Sacrament of First Reconciliation, I have been visiting the
Grade 2 classrooms and Fr Alex has visited the students of the RCIC Program.

Please be reminded that the First Reconciliation Parent and Child Meeting, including the rehearsal, will take
place at the church on either Tuesday, November 22, or Wednesday November 23 at 7:00 p.m. Attendance
is mandatory.

Specific dates and times for your child’s First Reconciliation (accompanied by one parent only) will take place
on either Saturday November 26 or Saturday December 3 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Each family
may book a ticket for their child through Eventbrite, beginning on Monday November 14 at 7:00 a.m. at:
https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/st-ignatius-loyola-church-grade-2-first-reconciliation-tickets-460791488747


Between now and the upcoming meeting, I ask that each family:

❖ joins us for Sunday mass at any of our regular masses on Saturdays 5:00 p.m., Sundays 7:45 a.m.,
9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m. (we have Liturgy of the Word with Children in the parish hall) or 12 Noon.


❖ Complete the first four of the themes of the We Prepare for Reconciliation book and review the
pages stapled to the back inside cover of the book entitled A Child’s First Celebration of
Reconciliation and Examination of Conscience for Children.


As part of your child’s preparation for First Communion, we will continue to visit the students at school and
the RCIC Program. I ask that you as the first teachers of faith of your children continue to work with them at
home by using the Parent Guide in both preparation books.


Please know that we are here to support you and your family as we prepare for First Reconciliation and First
Communion. Kindly leave me a message, 905-820-1444 or thanley@archtoronto.org if we can be of
assistance.


Yours in Christ,


Fr. Tim Hanley
Pastor
