Registration and Baptism certificate are necessary. Competence in English is a pre-requisite. See all details in the menu: click "Children catechetic"
"The Gospel Group, which follows the calendar of the CCD programme, is a pre-catechism class for children (between 3 and) of 4 years old, and meets in the Church Hall from 10.50 through the liturgy of the Word of the 11 o'clock mass on Sundays. We wish to show the children that going to church can not only be fun, but also a sharing of projects and a meeting with friends.
We approach our privileged work with the children by covering the following topics that coincide more or less with the church’s calendar: between September and December - “God’s creation”, “the sign of the cross”, “Advent” - between January and the end of May/June we generally help them discover a couple of stories of the Bible and also “the Angels”, the prayers of the "Our Father” and the "Hail Mary” and the "Glory Be, "Water and baptism". We would like to involve you the parents. In this way what is done on a Sunday morning will be re-emphasized – the learning of the children will be deepened and their communication improved."
