Saturday 13th July 10.20am-1.30pm: Speaker: David Wells. Venue:
Trinity School, Beechdale Road, Nottingham NG8 3EZ. The four aims of the day are:
a) To feel enthusiastic about being/becoming a catechist (even if you are not one or feel reluctant to be one).
b) To be clearer about what catechists do, why do it, and how to be more missionary focused.
c) To learn some new methods and techniques encouraged by Pope Francis.
d) To relax and enjoy the day and be away at about 1.30pm
As far as I am aware, we have no active catechists in the parish at
the moment. If you would be interested in the above day, please
let Fr. John know. The work of catechesis covers preparation for baptism, children’s liturgy, confirmation, first holy communion,
marriage, RCIA. part.

For the hire of our community hall please contact Jenny Whitby on 01335 346134 or email


The sacraments lie at the heart of the Church’s life, and so our preparation for each of the sacraments takes place in a way that respects the nature of each sacrament and the person receiving it.  We try and express how each sacrament is a touch of God in our lives and at the same time links us with the community of his family, the Church.
For details about specific sacraments go to the relevant page.
Baptism, Marriage, Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
