The church welcomes children of all ages to come and join their Sunday group.
The group meets in the Sacristy during the 10.30 Mass. It is important to note that this is not a substitution for the Mass, but an attempt to find a more appropriate way of presenting the Ministry of the Word to the children.
The main structure of this group will compose of the children reading or listening to the weekly scriptures and re-creating the stories onto paper either in words or picture. The children then decide how they would like to display their work either onto the notice board or for example creating their stained glass window.
Their learning outcome will be that they will be able to retell a religious story in their own way and will begin to appreciate the importance of religion and religious artefacts.
