Religious Formation Programs
Teaching our future generations the Word of the Lord is one of the pillars within our community. We have a strong education program run by passionate volunteers, wanting to pass along the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. For adults, we have the Rite of Christian Initiation program run by our very own Deacon Paul. The Sundays on which classes are given are always buzzing with excitement. We cannot wait to see you and your children with us.
Childrens Liturgy Of The Word
We aim to introduce the children to the Liturgy of the Word in the way that it forms part of the “adult” mass. But we do this in a way that engages our kids and makes learning about Jesus fun and exciting. There is no need to register for Children’s Liturgy-the children need only come to the front at the beginning of the mass when Fr. Sjaak calls the children forward.
Religious Education and First Holy Communion
We offer a religious education program for children from Kindergarten (age 5) to age 13. We use the Sadlier “We Believe” program which was developed by nationally recognized experts in catechesis, curriculum, and child development. These teachers of the faith and practitioners helped to frame every lesson to be age-appropriate and appealing. In addition, a team including respected catechetical, liturgical, pastoral, and theological experts shared their insights and inspired the development of this program.
An overview of the available RE classes can be found here.
We offer a Confirmation Program for Teens aged 14 years and up. The classes are organized in an informal setting and the youth are encouraged to explore and discuss various aspects of our Roman Catholic faith.
Please note: The Confirmation Team will be attending the weekend Parish Retreat which means there is NO CONFIRMATION CLASS on Sunday, 26 September as originally planned. The first Confirmation Class is on Sunday, 3 October 2021.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
For anyone that becomes interested in our Christian faith, we offer an education program for adults led by Deacon Paul. You might be completely new to our faith, you might want to grow your understanding or you might feel the need to deepen your relationship with Christ. Everyone is welcome to attend this program.
