It is common practice in the Archdiocese of Toronto that children in Grade 2 become eligible for First Communion.
Families with children entering Grade 2 in September 2023 (or older children who have yet to receive First Communion), are asked to prepare a copy of the children’s Baptism certificate, available from the church where they were baptized. This will be a requirement for registrations in Fall 2023. Families with children baptized here at St Patrick’s do not need to provide a copy of the certificate.
The initial Information Meeting for parents are scheduled at 7:00 p.m. at the church on Tuesday 26 September 2023. The meeting will begin with Mass at 7:00 p.m. with the formal meeting to follow after Mass. Registration forms will be handed out at the meeting.
First Communion preparations consist of Sunday Mass, parents’ meetings, and at-home activities. For the full schedule of the preparation program (including tentative celebration dates), please visit the Sacramental Preparation page of our website.
