My name is Fr. Paul MacNeil, the new pastor of St. Alexander's parish. I'm so happy your child is making their first communion this year! Our first communion ceremony will take place on Sunday, April 30th at 2:00 pm, with first reconciliation to take place on Friday, April 28th at 5:00 pm. Please take a moment to fill out our form below (scroll down). Meanwhile, here is some additional information:
Registration: All students making their first communion must fill out a registration form below. Copies of your child’s baptism forms are also required and can be uploaded with the form. Please contact the parish office if you have any difficulty with registration or if you would don't have access to a computer. The deadline for registration forms is November 11th.
First Confession: Children will also be able to go to confession for the first time on Friday, April 28th at 5:00 pm. More information about this will be available in the spring. There is no need to register in advance for this sacrament, and first confession is at the discretion of the parents.
Non-catholic children: Children who are not baptized Catholic will need to be baptized or officially received into the church before they receive their first communion. This is very easy to do! Just leave a note on the first communion registration form under "additional notes.” We will be in touch.
Students outside St. Alexander's School (i.e. public school): Please fill out the form below and leave a note indicating that your child does not go to St. Alexander's school. They are still welcome to receive first communion with the other children, or we can make separate arrangements.
Parent information session: Please join us for a special parent information session on Sunday, October 16th, after the 11:00 am Mass (around noon or shortly after).
