Catechism: These classes are held every week during the school term in our new Catechetical centre, Fr John-Allen hears confessions during Catechism so that the children get used to receiving the Sacrament. At the end of every term Father says Mass for the children during their Catechism time. Sunday after Mass is also time for Catechetics for those who cannot come on Fridays.


Catechism including RCIA: This takes place on a Tuesday evening at 7pm and is led by Fr John-Allen.


Confirmation: These classes are taken by Inky Powell and are on Friday afternoons from 1.15pm until 3.00pm.


If you feel called to assist in any of the above ministries, we would love to hear from you!
