Parents are to read the material with your children and assist them in learning.
Students will attend classes from October – May and must participate in 80% of the classes in order to move on. A detailed calendar will be sent to you via email once you sign up.
The curriculum for the class will include age appropriate material to help understand what Catholics believe about God, the celebration of our faith, the sacraments and liturgy, and the daily living out of these beliefs through virtues and prayer, especially in service of others. In a particular way students will also be taught the meaning of Mass and its rituals as well as the importance of faith at home and in the parish.
Donations are accepted to help cover the costs of the teaching materials. Registration fee: €50, 00 to cover costs of textbooks, certificates and supplies during the year.
