In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Attention: Pastors, Parish Sacramental Preparation Coordinators and Catechists!

It’s here! We’re pleased to make available via the Diocesan website the Year One Manual for Sacramental Preparation in the Diocese of Victoria. You can either download the entire Manual, or choose a particular Sunday.

Year Two of the program is also nearly ready to be placed on the website—stay tuned for the announcement! It can be downloaded for parishes who piloted Year One this past year. 

Please note: these are in draft form and are a "work in progress"—during the coming year, edits will continue to be made. You will note changes to the binder distributed in April 2013, particularly as it relates to the celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Remember, help with your questions and concerns are only a phone call away. We are looking forward to meeting with all involved in the program on September 7, 2013 at St. Peter’s in Nanaimo OR on September 14, 2013 at St. Patrick’s Church Hall in Victoria. Both session will run  from 9:30 – noon.

Please register by September 1st  for either of these workshops by e-mail or a phone call to Char Deslippe ( or call 250.479.1331 extension 238) or Jim O’Reilly ( or call 250.479.1331 extension 236).

We’ll have the coffee ready!
