Catechists

The catechists are a group of people in our parish who share their faith with adults and children.
Catechists help with the preparation programmes for: Baptism, Confirmation, first Confession and Communion.

There is a group of people who help with Children’s’ Liturgy on a rota basis at 11am Mass on Sundays. It has the aim of bringing the readings and homily to children in a way that is easy for them to understand. At the beginning of Mass, children are invited to go with the leaders to the hall. Whilst in the centre they participate in prayers and listen to a simplified version of the Gospel for that day. Once the Gospel has been read we encourage the children to discuss the story and its meaning whilst enjoying an activity based on the theme. The children are led back into the church for the Offertory procession bringing their work up to the altar.
