The children meet monthly on Saturday mornings from 10.00 to 11.15 am. The Christine Brussleman course is used. The themes that they follow are Belonging, Celebrating, Listening, Caring, Making Peace, Giving Thanks, Sharing a Meal and Let's Go Forth. Once a month this is reflected in the Sunday liturgy at the 9.00 am mass.

The parents meet monthly to discuss the theme their children are preparing. Please see either Deacon Kevin or Cath Lyons for application forms for entry to the programme. Children must be entering Year 3 in September when the course begins.
