Catechism Classes for Children

Children’s Catholic Instruction Programme (CCIP)

The CCIP prepares our English-speaking young people to receive the sacraments of First Holy Communion, Reconciliation and Confirmation.  On occasion, special classes are given for older children who have yet to be baptized, so that they may receive this sacrament, as well as the above-mentioned sacraments where their age makes that appropriate.   

Classes are held Saturday mornings (September to June) from 9:15a.m. to 10:30a.m.  Registration for the program takes place in mid-August. 

Interested parties are requested to listen out for announcements at our Sunday Masses at the beginning of August.  Posters with detailed information are also posted on our Church bulletin boards. 

Parents are requested to accompany their child for registration, bringing along the child’s Baptismal Certificate and a copy of the same. 

In the case of registration for Confirmation, a copy of the sponsor’s certificate of Baptism, Confirmation and marriage are also required. 

Age requirements

  • First Holy Communion – from the age of 8 years
  • Confirmation – between the ages of 12 and 16 years
