First Reconciliation & First Communion Registration

First Reconciliation & First Communion Registration

Welcome!

Welcome to our First Communion and First Reconciliation registration page. We are so excited to be able to help you prepare for these important sacraments! This year’s preparation process will look somewhat different from past years due to the situation with COVID-19.

We have decided to embark on a mostly online preparation process this year in an effort to keep all our young people – and leaders – as safe as possible during these challenging times. We are excited to be able to offer this new form of preparation, and we are confident that we can deliver an excellent preparation process despite the challenges.

This page is designed to provide you with all the information you need to navigate this process. However, if you find that you have additional questions, please email pastoralassociate@stpiusbrantford.ca and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that registrations must be completed by Friday, December 17th, 2021 to be adequately prepared for First Reconciliation in February/March of 2022 and First Communion in the spring of 2022.

First Reconciliation Liturgy Registration

Due to limited capacity in the church as a result of physical distancing restrictions, we will be holding two First Reconciliation Liturgies this year. We would ask that you please use the below form to sign up for whichever Liturgy works best for you. Please note that we are limiting each Liturgy to 35 families based on the capacity of the building.

Please register once per family, and include the name(s) of the First Communicant(s) as well as a phone number. Registration opens on October 1st, 2021 and closes on February 12th, 2022.

First Communion Mass Registration

Due to the limited capacity at First Communion Masses, we intend to offer a number of options. Each Mass will be limited to a maximum of twelve First Communicant families. Guest numbers will be limited based on the number of registered families for each Liturgy; however, we are aiming for approximately ten per family. Registration for the spring of 2022 will take place in December or January. Those who have registered for First Reconciliation and First Communion will be contacted with details in advance of registrations opening.
