Registration packages will be available at the back of the church after each Mass. 

Below are details of the Sacramental Preparation Program.

If you have any questions, please contact Ahmie at


To be eligible to prepare for and receive a sacrament at Our Lady of Sorrow Parish, participants and their families must fulfill three conditions:

  1. Regularly attend Sunday Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows Church.
  2. The family should be registered parishioners of OLS Church (Note: Registration at OLS School or family history of sacraments received at OLS Parish do not constitute parish registration).
  3. Parents and children must participate in the relevant aspects of the preparation program outlined below.

If your family does not regularly attend Sunday Mass at OLS Church and/or is not officially registered with a parish, you are welcome to register with the parish at this time and begin attending regularly.  All other families should, at their earliest convenience, contact the parish nearest their home or the parish they regularly attend for information on sacramental preparation.  

Children who do not attend a Catholic school are also required to be enrolled in the parish’s Religious Education Program.  This is a seven-year program (grade1 to grade 7) that follows the religious education curriculum set by the TCDSB.  See information available on the parish website regarding registration for the parish’s Religious Education Program.

Religious Education Program
