Childrens   Liturgy   Group


During the Liturgy session we have time

for prayer and reflection and the key is the Gospel.  

The children explore the message of the Gospel through

activities such as craft, drama and singing.  

The children return to the

church to present their work as part of the offertory.

The Liturgy group is also responsible for arranging

the Good Friday service for chidren and the Children's

Mass on Christmas Eve.

The Catechists are all volunteers from the Parish community and would always welcome new helpers and leaders. (Please note that all our helpers and leaders are DBS checked).  Older children, particularly those involved in the Confirmation Programme are welcome to help.

If you would like to be part of the team, or want to obtain further information, please contact us via one of the following:


              Through the Parish Office - 0118  957  2149

                 By speaking to one of the team before or after Mass

The Children's Liturgy forms part of the 9.30 11.30 and 5.00pm Masses and is run by a group of Catechists from within the parish.


We have children joining us from the age

of 4; however younger children are also welcome to join if they are accompanied

by an adult.

It takes place on the 1st Sunday of each month during the school term and is designed to help children understand

the message of the Gospel in a way that is more

appropriate for their age.
