COVID-19 Restrictions Update
October 1, 2021
Beginning Tuesday, October 5th, the new public orders will permit indoor sizes for faith-based gatherings to 25 people or 33 percent capacity, whichever is greater. This means that our maximum limit with physical distancing in church remains at approximately 80 people.
For funerals, weddings, and baptisms the number is reduced to 25 people.
Masks must be worn in all indoor public places, including places of worship and physical distancing of two metres for everyone not living in the same household must be maintained.
If you would like to attend a weekend Mass, please call or email the office the week prior to book a space. We still need to have a list of names and numbers of all those attending for the purpose of contact tracing.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Let us continue to pray for one another…and to stay safe

With the support and cooperation of the parents, family and parish community, Holy Redeemer Parish Religious Education Program is dedicated to preparing our young people 'to know, love and serve God', by providing knowledge of God and understanding of our faith through teaching, witness and service. We are committed to the teachings, traditions and values of the Roman Catholic faith.

Holy Redeemer Religious Education will be trying something new this year by using FORMED.org as the main resource.
Our Catechism program consists of weekly classes held on Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Catechists prepare the lesson each week for the children to complete with their families at home. We encourage all family members to be involved. Parents are the first teachers of their children’s faith. Our goal is for our families to grow and share their faith with each other and to have strong domestic churches within our parish. With this in mind, we are replacing our traditional classroom model of children's catechism to a family-based model. Each week, we will have a video from FORMED.Org then break out into groups to discuss the video. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend.
Classrooms are in the lower level of the church. A wheelchair life is available if necessary.
A Home Study program is available for Grades One through Six and requires attendance at periodically throughout the year. Advent, Christmas, Lent & Easter.
See our 21/22 Registration Information & Policy:
Catechism classes are offered for Grade One through Six. Annual registration is required. Registration forms are available for download here (click on the appropriate links):
Please print off the appropriate registration forms. Hard copies of forms are also available next to the Catechetics Office at the Church.
Please submit completed and signed form(s), with the registration fee to the Catechetical Coordinator at Holy Redeemer Parish office. Classes will begin October 7.
Preparation to receive a Sacrament is a separate program held in addition to the regular Catechism Program. Children will be eligible to enroll in Sacramental preparation only after completing one full year in the Catechism Program at Holy Redeemer (or elsewhere as validated). A copy of the child's Baptismal certificate is required.
The revised Diocesan Policy recommends that children celebrate only one Sacrament per year, and stipulates that parents/guardians of the child who will be celebrating a Sacrament must also receive catechesis relevant to that Sacrament. The Diocese recommends that parents (guardians) attend a set of six adult catechesis sessions for each Sacrament. The sessions do not have to be repeated for a second child celebrating the same Sacrament. Sacramental catechesis for parents (guardians) and children will be held concurrently, but in separate areas.
Therefore, the Sacrament of First Reconciliation will usually be celebrated in Grade 2. Catechesis for the Sacrament will begin in late Fall, with First Confession usually in the Advent Season at a special celebration. The child must also complete a workbook with family participation.
The Sacrament of First Holy Eucharist will usually be celebrated in Grade 3 (First Reconciliation must be celebrated prior). Catechesis for the Sacrament will begin in January, with First Holy Communion in the Easter Season at Sunday Mass. The family will be requested to attend a Rite of Enrollment ceremony at a designated Sunday Mass, and the child must complete a workbook with family participation and also attend a retreat.
The Sacrament of Confirmation will usually be celebrated the year after completing Grade 1 to 6 of the Catechism program. Candidates must have made their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion prior. Catechesis will begin in the late Fall with Confirmation in May/June (often at a special weekday evening Mass).
Confirmation Candidates are required:
