In regards to the celebration of the sacraments of Christian initiation for children who have completed their preparation (Reconciliation and Eucharist), each parish will establish its own calendar of celebrations which will best suit its needs. These could be, for example, celebrating First Communion during Sunday celebrations spread out throughout the summer or celebrations in small groups only for the candidates, etc.

Memo to all parishes
We have just learned from the government that the 50-person limit per celebration has been lifted. This means that we will be able to allow a higher number of faithful per celebration as of next weekend, depending on the capacity of the church, while respecting the required distance. Please note that this will not change the capacities for this weekend.
