These are weekly sessions conducted in our parish by catechists for children and teens between the ages of 7 to 15. The Parish Catechism Programme is a 9-year programme that allows our children to learn more about the Catholic Faith. Most importantly, the sessions aim to lead our children and teens to a personal encounter with Christ. At the Foundation level, the focus is on helping the child fall in love with Jesus. They learn about the Kingdom of God and who Jesus is and how He calls them by name. They are also introduced to the Mass where Jesus continues to be with us.
From Levels 2 to 6, the focus is on the ways God has blessed us with his many gifts. The children deepen their understanding of Scripture and the Liturgy. They are introduced to the history of the Kingdom of God – the story of God’s love for us from the beginning of time. It is during this time, they receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation & Eucharist.
When they reach adolescence from Levels 7 to 9, the focus is on their response to this call and blessing of God, which is discipleship. The teens will have a deeper experience of Christ through service and mission projects. They also learn to deal with the challenges of growing up as they deepen their relationship with God. At Level 9, they will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Parents play an important role in our parish catechetical programme, they are invited to join their children for Parent & Child Sessions conducted at various times during the year.
