From the basics of Bible stories for our littlest members, to LifeTeen for young adults, our youth programmes are firmly grounded in recognised Catholic curriculums. These not only prepare them for the reception of Sacraments, but tackle the many difficult issues they will face growing up in a modern world.
All classes begin the weekend of 2-4 February, with the exception of Confirmation. Parents are asked to kindly register their children for 2024 classes. Queries may be directed to the parish office.

Basics of Catholic Catechism: Gr 1 and 2 children are invited to attend a religious orientation programme on Friday evenings at 5pm that lays the foundation for First Confession in Gr 3 and First Holy Communion in Gr 4.
First Confession takes place in November each year. Children in Gr 3 prepare for this sacrament of mercy and healing by way of catechism instruction on Sunday mornings during the school term. Catechism takes place in the hall from 08:00 – 09:00.
First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion takes place in November every year on the feast of Christ the King. Children in Gr 4 prepare for this intimate communion with Jesus and His Church by way of catechism instruction most Fridays during the school term. Catechism takes place on Sunday mornings from 08:00 – 09:00.
EDGE is for children in Gr 5 – 7. They meet on Friday evenings in the parish hall. Like LifeTeen, EDGE children have fun while getting to know the Lord, His teachings and His Church. From January 2022, EDGE will enjoy a slightly longer time-slot, from 18:00 – 19:30. EDGE children are encouraged to bring along friends from other Catholic parishes and Christian churches.
LifeTeen is for high schoolers in grade 8 -12. Open to those from any religious background, each evening begins in the hall after the 18:00 Sunday Mass (19:00 – 20:30). At LifeTeen, young people have fun while learning to pray and know God and His teachings. LifeTeen leads children to encounter Jesus in prayer and the sacraments within the context of the God’s family, the Church. To join, simply show up in the hall most Sundays during the school term at 19:00.
