Children’s Liturgy for those aged 3-6- Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Our weekly ‘Catechisis of the Good Shepherd’ sessions on Sundays are run by Ellie Calderon. Each week at 10am parents/carers will need to drop their child (ren) off via the main parish hall entrance where they will be guided by the catechist’s to the children’s Atrium. At the end of the session parents/carers will need to collect their child(ren) at 11am during the offertory where they will re-join the mass until the end.  If your child(ren) is aged between 3-6 and you would like them to take part in these sessions please email Ellie Calderon at ellieemh@live.co.uk.  Thanks!  Ellie Calderon
