On most term-time Saturday mornings between January and June, at least three catechists help the children prepare for this special time in their lives. We recognise that parents are the first educators of their children’s faith, and expect that much of the preparation for the sacraments will be taking place at home. (Click here to see the letter to parents) We also have close links with the Sacred Heart Primary School who reinforce the learning within the RE curriculum in Year 3.
The children and parents are following the ‘I Belong’ scheme produced by Redemptorist Publications.
