The Role of the Whole Parish
in Preparing Children and Adults
to Celebrate Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist

September 18 - September 19, 2015
Manresa Jesuit Spiritual Renewal Centre 2325 Liverpool Road, Pickering, ON

The task of preparing children and adults to celebrate initiation is one of the joys and responsibilities of all the baptized. Each parish, regardless of its size or the number of candidates preparing to celebrate a sacrament of initiation, is able to assist the baptized community in fulfilling their primary role. The conference will name challenges and explore pastoral approaches to deepening the role of the Sunday assembly in the initiation of new members.

It will be of particular interest to:

  • Pastors, Deacons, Lay Pastoral Staff
  • Parishioners responsible for preparing others to celebrate, Baptism, Confirmation & First Eucharist.
  • School Personnel involved in immeditate preparation for the sacraments of Confirmation & First Eucharist.
  • Parish Initiation Team (RCIA) Members
