Children’s and Youth Programs

All programs are led by a team of dedicated church volunteers under the Spiritual guidance of our Pastor, Fr. Raymond Lukie,C.Ss.R; and Associate Pastor, Fr. Michael Smolinski, C.Ss.R.

Parent Program For First Reconciliation/Solemn Holy Communion

As your child continues to grow in faith through their preparations for the holy mysteries, he/she will continue to need your support and guidance.  These parent sessions will focus more on the sacraments and helping your child prepare for them.  You are automatically registered for these sessions when your child is enrolled in the First Reconciliation/Solemn Holy Communion Program. 

The parent sessions are held during your child’s class time, but not as often as your child’s classes.  There will be a total of 7 sessions on various Mondays throughout the year.

For more information, please contact Andrea at the parish office at 306-343-6516 or email Andrea Swann at sspp.chprograms@sasktel.net.
