Every year in September, the Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto invites youth in Grade 8 to consider making their Confirmation. Here at St. Benedict, we are proud to offer a parish-based Confirmation preparation process called Anointed for Mission.
Anointed for Mission was developed according to the guidelines provided by our Archdiocese. It engages parents and children in various gatherings including a family interview, catechetical sessions, a commitment ceremony, a faith-sharing breakfast, and a retreat.
Anointed for Mission is for a youth in Grade 8 who:
- is baptized in the Catholic Church or other Christian Church
- regularly receives to the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion
- participates at Mass weekly at St. Benedict Church on Saturday evenings or Sundays
- has an active experience of prayer in the family and
- receives religious education at a Catholic school
Confirmation is celebrated in the Easter season as close as possible to the feast of Pentecost.
Registration forms are available at the parent meeting each September.
