Sacraments of Reconciliation & First Holy Communion
Registration for these sacraments are advertised in the church bulletin and St. Anthony School for students who are age 7+. If your child has not been baptized in St. Anthony Parish Drayton Valley, then a copy of their baptismal certificate is required. Registration will be held at St. Anthony’s Parish the beginning of September. A schedule will be handed out at this time.
All preparation classes for children and parents are held weekly on Thursdays, beginning the following January or February from 6:30-8:00 PM downstairs at St. Anthony’s Parish. The participants will be taught from The Dynamic Catholic Institute Manual and DVD (1st Edition). There will be homework each week from the workbooks and a payment for the books will be collected at registration. All parents and children are required to attend all classes and regular Sunday Mass.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be held the day before the Sacrament of Holy Communion which is held on Holy Trinity Sunday Mass, 8th Sunday following Easter, in either May or June.
