Saturday Catechism Classes

These sessions are held on Saturday mornings (term time) 10.45am – 11.30am in
the parish halls. Any children aged 4 to 8 years willing to learn or revise their
understanding of the faith are welcome to attend. We start and end with prayer. The
children learn the basic prayers with an explanation of their meaning and where we
get them from e.g. references to the Bible. Readings from the Children’s Bible and
explain why they were created, the reason for their baptism and what it means to
belong to the family of God. If we have time the children will have a chance to do
some drawings and colouring and a small piece of homework; fill in the blanks of a
word search relating to what we have learnt at the session. The children have a
walk around the inside of our lovely church where they learn about the sacramental
signs and symbols, the right way to give reverence to God and genuflect. We go
through parts of the Mass and explain the meaning of certain words and what it
means to have grace. Please contact the parish office for further details 020 8672
