A group of citizens working to sponsor a Syrian family here in the Bow Valley are meeting at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 17 at Ralph Connor Memorial United Church, 617 Main Street, Canmore. The first tasks of organizing have already taken shape, now we need to discern our volunteer strength - volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising, housing, and support services. All are welcome to attend!
First Eucharist and First Reconciliation: Registration forms are now available on the bulletin board at the back of the church. The registration fee is $10.00 and a copy of the child’s Catholic baptism certificate must be submitted with the registration form.
First Reconciliation Registration Deadline: January 15, 2016 First Communion Deadline: April 1, 2016
REGISTRATION FORMS WITH FEE MUST BE RETURNED TO THE PARISH OFFICE
We require person(s) to prepare the children for First Reconciliation.
Please contact the parish office if you are interested in preparing the children for First Reconciliation.
RCIA: Interested in becoming Catholic or learning more about your faith? Come and join the RCIA (Right of Christian Initiation for Adults) group which meets Monday evenings at 7:30pm at St. Martha’s house (the blue house beside the church), or contact Al Bush at 403 678-9458.
Baptisms: For all baptisms, a Baptismal Preparation Course is required. Due to a lack of volunteers, the program is only offered two or three times a year. Therefore, as much notice as possible must be given to the parish, so that parents can take the course and set a date for the baptism. Baptismal Forms can be picked up in the parish office
Marriages: Please Note: The office must be informed 12 weeks in advance of any marriages taking place outside of the parish and requiring Freedom to Marry forms or a letter of permission.
