As part of the parish annual preparation for catechesis, two evenings in September, Tuesday 12th and 19th, have been allocated for a general meeting and training for those involved in catechesis. It will be important for those involved in the various sacramental programmes of the parish: Baptism, Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, Confirmation, Children’s Liturgy, RCIA, Marriage and Bereavement, to attend. The first session Tuesday 12th September will be led by Mark Nash, Director of the Catholic Formation Centre here in our parish. We also add a particular note to those who are currently parents of children in Year 2 and whose children will be making their First Holy Communion in June 2018 who wish to be considered as catechists to make their intentions known to Martine at the parish office before the end of August. That way their training process and DBS clearance can be arranged.
