Young People's Activities

  Children's Liturgy

Apart from the summer break, at the 11am Sunday Mass we usually have a Children's Liturgy. The Children's Liturgy is an act of worship with simplified readings. It is not a creche. The children are invited to leave the main body of the church after the opening hymn. They return when the bread and wine are presented at the altar. Parents and guardians may accompany the children. All Children's Liturgy leaders are police-checked. As a rule of thumb, it is for those children of Primary School age. However, once children start preparation for First Holy Communion they remain in the church and do not attend the Children's Liturgy.


First Communion Preparation

The First Communion group are children in year 3 aged 8 years who are learning more about their relationship with Jesus.
  • They talk about their First Sacrament, Baptism, and the start of their faith journey.
  • They discover Gods Love and how to make things right.  This is through stories from Jesus.
  • They talk about their lives and how they can show Gods Love
  • They make the Sacrament of Their First Confession.

The children are invited to become closer to Jesus by making their First Communion.

They discover the meaning and importance of the last supper and why we come to Mass on Sunday.

   Confirmation Classes

Confirmation classes are held roughly once a month - additional dates are added as they need to be. All changes and updates are included in the newsletter.  They are for any young person aged 9+,  who would like to be confirmed.  It is a very flexible programme that aims to meet the young people where they are and to explore the issues that are important to them as a young person  today. The sessions run from September until their Confirmation in May (date to be finalised), and they take place at the church from 10 am until 10.45, so there is the opportunity to attend mass straight afterwards.

If you would like any more information or would like your child to attend the next sequence of sessions please contact Annemarie McElhatton either by phone or email 07515196032.
