Sacramental Preparation at Holy Name Church

BAPTISM

Baptism is the sacrament by which an individual becomes a Christian and, therefore, a member of Christ’s mystical body – the Church.

EUCHARIST

For children’s First Eucharist, click here.

The Eucharist is the “source and summit of the Christian life”, and all the other sacraments are ultimately oriented toward it (CCC 1324). We Catholics believe that Christ is present in the Eucharist, and that in the Holy Mass we all participate in the heavenly liturgy.

RECONCILIATION

For children’s First Reconciliation, click here.

Also known as Confession, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is where the faithful encounter God’s infinite mercy and forgiveness.

CONFIRMATION

For Student Confirmation (for youth grades 6 and up) and Adult Confirmation, click here.

The Sacrament of Confirmation perfects the grace that Christians receive during Baptism. And, similar to Baptism, it imprints an indelible mark on a Christian’s soul, which is why this sacrament can only be received once (CCC 1316).

Please contact the parish office at 403 249 7764 or parish.holyname@shaw.ca to learn more.

ANOINTING OF THE SICK

Anointing of the Sick is administered to any baptized Catholic person who is seriously ill or in danger of death (CCC 1513), and can only be administered by a priest. 

Contact the Parish at 403-249-7764 for more information.  The Diocese of Calgary also has a Priest Emergency Paging hotline at 403-231-9505 for those in need of Anointing of the Sick, Reconciliation, or Viaticum in an emergency medical situation.

MARRIAGE

Matrimony is the sacrament in the Catholic Church by which “a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life” (CCC 1601). With the blessing of God and the Church – in the presence of family and friends – a couple who enters into marriage celebrates a union of love that is oriented toward each other’s good and towards procreation.

Contact the Parish office at 403-249-7764 for more information.

HOW DO I BECOME CATHOLIC?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the sacramental process through which adults are welcomed into the Church.
