Home

We are a faith community of over 800 families and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria. The parish was created in 1912 under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our present church, dedicated to Saint Patrick was completed in 1960 and the Parish Centre and St. Clare Villa, a life-lease residence for seniors, were added in 1999.

St Patrick's School, which opened in 1956 provides Kindergarten through Grade 7 and emphasizes both the academic and spiritual development of our students.

2017 – 2018 Sacramental Preparation Program

Dear Parents,

Welcome! I look forward to this journey of faith that you are about to undertake with your child as they prepare to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion.

This journey begins when your child is in grade two at school!

This is a two-year journey where there will be time to continue to share and grow in our understanding and commitment to our baptismal promises. Regular attendance to Sunday Mass is a very important component of this two-year process and is an expectation of the pastor!

In Year I, the students will prepare for the reception of Reconciliation.

In Year II, the students will prepare for the reception of Confirmation and First Holy Communion. These sacraments are celebrated within the Easter Season of the church year.

First Communion will be celebrated on the Feast of the Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), June 3, 2018 at the 10:30am Sunday Family Mass.

Once again, on behalf of Father Eduardo, the teachers and myself, welcome!
We look forward to supporting you and your family on this very special journey of faith!

Classes take place on Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 10:25am in the Parish Centre.

Sincerely,
Barbara J. Shenton
Sacramental Preparation Coordinator
