First Reconciliation & Holy Communion

Reconciliation  

Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.”  When he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”                                                                       – John 2: 21-23

Communion

Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.”                                                                                  – Luke 22: 19-20

Children in grade 2 and up who have been baptized or made the Profession of Faith in the Catholic Church can register for

the Sacrament Preparation Program. This is a combined program. First Reconciliation must be completed before First Communion.

At the beginning of September you will receive an email from our Sacraments Coordinator who will provide you with further information.

* Please note your child’s Birth Certificate and Baptismal Certificate are required to register.

Please contact sacraments@stpatrickcalgary.com for more information.

Confirmation

Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent to them Peter and John, who came down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit; for it had not yet fallen on any of them, but they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then they laid their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit.
– Acts 8:14-17

Children in grade 6 and up who have been baptized or made a Profession of Faith in the Catholic Church, and have already received the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion, can register for the Confirmation Preparation Program. 

At the beginning of September you will receive an email from our Sacraments Coordinator who will provide you with further information.

* Please note your child’s Birth Certificate and Baptismal Certificate are required to register

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

The sacraments of Christian initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist – lay the foundations of every Christian life. The sharing in the divine nature given to men through the grace of Christ bears a certain likeness to the origin, development, and nourishing of natural life. The faithful are born anew by Baptism, strengthened by the sacrament of Confirmation, and receive in the Eucharist the food of eternal life. By means of these sacraments of Christian initiation, they thus receive in increasing measure the treasures of the divine life and advance toward the perfection of charity.
– CCC 1212

RCIA is mainly geared towards people who have never been baptized or who have little or no experience of the Church and who are looking to grow closer to God and want to become members of the Church founded by Christ.

If you are thinking of become a Catholic, please contact sacraments@stpatrickcalgary.com for more information.

Marriage

“So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
– Matthew 19:6

The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives the spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life.

Engaged couples are asked to contact the parish to begin the preparation process.

A minimum of four to six months notice is required to allow time for marriage preparation courses and for planning the wedding liturgy.

Please contact sacraments@stpatrickcalgary.com for more information.

Anointing of the Sick

“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” – James 5: 14-15

Families are encouraged to contact the parish office as early as possible on behalf of those who are ill, so that we can minister to our sick during their time of illness. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick may also be celebrated more than once with those who are seriously ill.

Should a loved one be close to their final hours, please give them the grace of receiving their ‘Last Rites’.

Please contact Marta at parish@stpatrickcalgary.com for more information.

Faith

lambs of the Divine Shepherd:

St. Patrick’s Parish offers its parishioners a great way to grow in faith by becoming a lamb of St. Patrick’s. As a ‘lamb’ you will receive an email on a weekly basis beginning again September 11, 2022, with a link to a short video based upon ‘Truths’ rooted in the Sacred Scriptures, the Magisterium of the Church and the Living Tradition of our Faith.

In addition to receiving weekly spiritual nourishment by being a ‘lamb of the Divine Shepherd’, many other avenues for Faith seeking Understanding will be made available to you. Sign up below to become a lamb of the Divine Shepherd.
