Published monthly, it provides practical help in reading, meditating on & understanding Scripture from the daily Mass readings. It helps see how Scripture is relevant in our daily lives.

    • As Baptism is initiation into our church community our parish will expect families following this course to take regular part in one of our parish Masses from now on and also beyond their child’s baptism.
    • Please contact the priests or the parish office, giving address and telephone number where you may be contacted.

Mass, which will be integral to the session, will follow at 5.30pm. We do expect all the children & parents to stay to take part in this Mass please.
