Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why is my child receiving Confirmation in grade 3?

 

 In 2006 Bishop Luc Bouchard restored the order of the Sacraments of Intiation.  Read Bishops Luc’s letter The Restoration of the Order of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation to learn more.

 

As of September 2017 Bishop Paul, in keeping with the restored order of the Sacraments, made the ammendment that the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion would no longer be recieved in the same liturgy.  For more information read Adjustment to our Pastoral Practice of Confirmation and First Communion from Bishop Paul.
