Dear Parents/Guardians:

Holy Spirit Parish is currently putting our Sacrament preparation programs on hold. We are taking this time to adapt our First Communion and Confirmation programs to a socially distanced, yet still engaging and effective, model. We do not have registration forms or starting dates for those grade 2 and 6 students who would ordinarily begin classes for First Communion and Confirmation. Hopefully, the delay in starting the programs will not need lead to a delay in the outpouring of God’s grace the children receive in Holy Communion and the gifts of the Spirit in Confirmation.

In addition, we do not yet have First Communion or Confirmation dates for those current grade 3 and 7 students who were enrolled in our Sacrament programs last Fall. We hope these celebrations can be occasions for great rejoicing with friends and family. The Sacraments of initiation are most appropriately celebrated with the Church community gathered as one, welcoming the children more deeply into the Body of Christ together. The current health precautions prevent the full communal participation in these life-changing encounters of grace. The staff at Holy Spirit Parish and the Archdiocese of Ottawa-Cornwall are working to discover the best ways to preserve the integrity of the celebrations while maintaining public health standards.

As soon as the dates and formats are chosen for the preparation programs, or and for the celebration of the Sacraments themselves, we will announce the plans at weekend Masses, update the website, and send an announcement to parents through the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
