The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s saving presence. Holy Rosary Church welcomes all persons and all families, with open hearts and open arms. We encourage all Catholics as well as those interested, to attend the Holy celebration of the Eucharist and the Lord, our Saviour, Jesus. We also offer sacramental preparation for members of our congregation and persons interested in becoming a member.
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.
Children not enrolled in a Catholic school should be enrolled in Religious Education classes. In order to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, you must complete two full years of classes (7th and 8th grade). Please refer to the Religious Education tab on our website.
