The Sacrament of Confirmation Registration
The Archdiocese of Toronto has lowered the grade for students to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Students entering grade 7 in the fall are now able to receive the Sacrament. St. Cecilia’s Church will be offering preparation studies to grade 7 students in October of 2016, who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in the spring of 2017.
Registration packages for the preparation of the Sacrament of Confirmation can be found at the back of the church for those who do not attend St. Cecilia’s School. Grade 7 students of St. Cecilia’s & St. Rita’s School will have registration packages mailed to their homes via the school.
Mandatory Registration Meeting (and deadline for registration):
Wednesday, November 9, 2016 @ 6:00 p.m. in the church hall.

ALL SOULS’ DAY
Wednesday November 2 2016
On the weekend of October 29 and 30th 2016, in preparation for “All Souls’ Day”, a basket will be available at the base of the altar for your ” All Souls’ Envelopes”. On the envelope, which you can pick up from the back of the church, write the names of deceased family members and friends and enclose your offering. Place envelopes in the basket. The office staff will enter those listed on the envelopes into the “Book of Souls”. The “Book of Souls” and the basket will remain at the altar for the entire month of November and those names therein will be prayed for at all Masses during the month of November.
Today for World Mission Sunday, along with Catholics throughout the world, we are called to offer our prayers and generous financial support, through the Propagation of the Faith, for the worldwide mission of Jesus.
Your gift on World Mission Sunday helps:
- People in remote villages, towns and cities through the witness and work of missionaries and local priests.
- Children, the elderly, refugees, the sick and orphans through the service of Religious Sisters and Brothers.
- To bring the Gospel to the poorest of our human family.
- Catechists proclaim the message of hope and peace that only Christ can give.
Please offer prayer for the work of the Church in the missions today – Pacific Islands, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
