Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Do you want your child to receive a sacrament, such as Confirmation?
Here’s how! Preparing children for a Catholic sacrament is a group effort that involves parents, St. Vital Catholic Parish, your child's School. Everyone has a role!
As a parent, you are the primary teacher of the faith for your child. As you know, the sacraments are celebrated and lived in the parish. Because of this, the preparation for the celebration of the sacraments takes place in the parish. Sacramental preparation registration takes place at the parish, not at the schools. The schools support what takes place in the home and parish and are a place for children to learn about Jesus Christ and develop a relationship with him.
As a parish community we are eager to journey with your family during this very special time.
The Confirmation program is designed for and received by children in Grade 6 or older.
Please contact the parish at 780-929-8541, for more information.

It is recommended that youth go to the sacrament of reconciliation (or confession) prior to Confirmation. Please book an appointment with the priest at 780-929-8541 or come Saturday between 4:30-4:45 for scheduled confession. Here is a recommended examination of conscience for grades 4-6.
