Parish Catechesis Years 1-5

 What we do in the Parish.

In the Latin Rite, the children prepare for their First Confession and First Holy Communion which takes place in Year 3.

In the Syro-Malabar Rite the child is baptised, confirmed and given First Holy Communion in infancy.

Later, in Year 5 the child will make their first Sacramental Confession and Solemn Communion.

For this reason the Parish Catechetical Programme is divided according to the liturgical Rite of the families: Latin or Syro-Malabar.

Catechism Classes in the Latin Rite

The dates for next year’s catechism classes in the Roman Rite are in the table below. Children make their First Holy Communion at the end of year 3 and are required to complete year 2 before joining year 3. Please fill in a registration form for your child, even if they attended last year, and give it to Fr Philip or the relevant class teacher. Thank you.
