Children of God (COG)
We have children’s liturgy groups at the Saturday 6.30pm and Sunday 11.00am Masses during term time, catering for 4 to 11 year old children.
The children leave church at the beginning of Mass and return at the Offertory having looked at the scriptures/theme of the day.
New helpers are always welcome. All of the necessary teaching materials are provided. Children who have made their First Holy Communion are encouraged to remain within the community.
We are fortunate to have parishioners who volunteer to help parents of non-Catholic School children prepare their children for the Sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion. The meetings are in term time in the Parish Lounge.
Classes are held on Saturdays for all candidates, regardless of whether they are attending a Catholic School or a non-Catholic School.
Child Protection (Safeguarding)
In keeping with the Catholic Church throughout the country, the Diocese of Northampton has implemented the recommendation of Lord Nolans’s and Baroness Cumberledge’s Report. All who have contact with children and vulnerable adults have to undergo a DBS check to offer their services in the Parish.
