Confirmation Celebrations - July 2021

Posted : Jul-01-2021

We are pleased to announce that we will be Confirming those students who were in Grade 7 in September 2019 this July. Candidates will be divided into 2 groups and parents will be contacted on Wednesday June 23rd to pick the date they would prefer (July 27 or 28).

Confession is mandatory and all candidates must attend confession on Saturday, July 24th at 11am. Effective June 30th, capacity has increased to 25% and therefore, parents may accompany their children into the church. Candidates are asked to wait patiently for their turn for Confession.

Confirmation Celebrations will be on Tuesday, July 27th at 7pm and Wednesday, July 28th at 7 pm.

If you have not been contacted on Wednesday June 23 to pick a date, please call the parish secretary at 905-793-6610 extension 0. You may also leave an email at stjohnfisherparish@gmail.com. Please note that Agata, our parish secretary works on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

Effective June 30th, capacity has increased to 25% and therefore on the evenings of the Confirmation Celebrations, each Candidate may be accompanied by their Sponsor and 2 guests (presumably their parents). 

Photographs are not allowed during the Confirmation mass. Immediately following the Confirmation Mass, Father will be available to take pictures with families and confirmandi in front of the altar. Families will approach the altar in a single file line.

No robes will be provided this year.

We know that this is not the usual way that Confirmations have been celebrated in the past at St John Fisher. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we "catch up" on sacraments that were missed due to the lockdowns.

Peace be with you!

Father Regulo Imperial
