Children's Liturgy

An act of worship specifically for children during Sunday Mass - which lasts between 15 - 20 minutes (roughly just before the start of the readings and up until the offertory procession).

The children, supervised by the Liturgy Leader and any parents or guardians, go to their own worship area and are read the readings from a Children's Bible. They are then encouraged to reflect on what it means to them by talking, singing songs or drawing pictures.

For more information please contact Father, the Parish Secretary or simply join the liturgy at Mass.

A group led by the Franciscan Sisters Minoress (FSM) for lay people. The aim is to introduce people to the life of Saint Francis and the gift of Franciscan spirituality which is his legacy to the church.

For more information please visit the Sisters' website here or speak to any FSM sister.
