Year 3  – this is the year when the children will prepare for and make their First Confession and First Holy Communion. The catechists rely on the children having been formed by Years 1 and 2 in order to bring them to a clear understanding about the real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and His Word.

Year 4 – is a year of further development and a deepening in understanding and faith from Year 3. We encourage parents to see this as a further step in keeping their children engaged in the Mysteries of God.

Year 5 – continues the development and a deepening in understanding and faith and morality. The children in this age group will be needing more understanding about living according to Gospel values and understanding their own mission in the Church to be beacons of light to the world around them.
