Our 9:00 AM Mass has a Children’s Liturgy during Term Time for 3-12 year olds. During the Mass, when the Readings are about to be proclaimed, the Priest will invite the children present to come forward. The children will process out together for their input and teaching with our volunteer leaders. They get to hear Jesus speaking to them. They return together for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Click below for more information on preparing your child for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.

Anchor is ongoing faith formation for all children in years 3-6. It’s an opportunity to grow in relationship with God, delve into Biblical stories and develop strong bonds of friendship.

Click below for more details.

“Never let the fire in your heart go out,” says Romans 12: 11. In years 4-7 the fire which God placed in them at Baptism and fanned in Holy Communion, is about to spark into greater life or be extinguished.

Ignite aims to help that fire grow in our children. They meet fortnightly to grow in friendship, be formed as disciples and help with Communion prep.

We have a small number of places each year so our team has to choose participants based on suitability.

Starting soon

To prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation it is expected that the candidate is involved in the life of the Parish or has been a part of the Focus Groups or Encounter journey.

For information on Confirmation see the link below.

The Saints Film Club is an exciting new group starting soon for all children. We will watch a short cartoon film (just like being in the cinema) and have some little activities related to the Saint.
For more information on the dates for the Saints Film Club please click below.
Tea & Coffee is also available for parents.

Serving at the altar is an immense privilege. If your child feels Jesus’s call to serve at his altar then encourage them to pray about it and then get in touch with us. You can speak to any of the priests or deacons. Alternatively, send us an email.

Focus is a pre-Confirmation group for our Parish youngsters in years 8 or 9. It runs October to January in blocks of 3 or 4 Sunday afternoons in a row.

What student doesn’t need to focus? But Focus is so much more than being savvy with time. It’s about where our youngsters aim their passion. Hebrews 12:2 tells us to fix “our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” When our youth are focused on Christ their vision will be crystal clear.

Coming 2022

Encounter is a pre-Confirmation group for our Parish youngsters in years 8 or 9. It runs March to June in blocks of 3 or 4 Monday evenings in a row. Until we know Jesus personally Catholicism is just another bunch of stuff to know. When we encounter Jesus we begin to see Catholicism as God’s chosen way to bring his life to us today.

Coming 2022

You have just received the Sacrament of Confirmation, now what? In Confirmation you were called by God to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit in order to be sent out to tell others about the good news of Jesus. Aspire is a group for you to grow in faith with others and to slowly discover the person God is calling you to be in this world. The world needs you to be who God is calling you to be.

Aspire meets fortnightly throughout the Academic year.

Coming 2022
