Revised Schedule for 2017

I M P O R T A N T   A N N O U N C E M E N T

Please be informed that the after much deliberation between the Catechetical office, the PPC Exco (Parish Pastoral Council Executive Committee) and our Parish Priest, the decision has now been made to re-schedule the primary level sessions to Saturday afternoons with effect from 2017.  This has been considered in the best interest of the spiritual well-being for the children and families, and to a lesser extent, the needs of the greater parish.


The new timing for the rescheduled sessions will be rescheduled to Saturdays at 1.30pm to 3.00pm. It is our hope that all affected children will to continue to journey with us at this new time. Secondary sessions currently on Sunday mornings will remain with no change. The current P6 cohort on Sunday will follow into the Sunday Sec 1 session in 2017.

The following reasons are cited for the change:


  • To promote Sunday as a day for families, as well as to encourage parents to attend Sunday Mass with their children. We seek to de-conflict catechetical sessions from Mass times, so that the young children can attend Mass together with their parents as a family.


  • the traffic situation at the open car park will be substantially improved without the burden of pick-up/drop-off for the close to 300 children at the same time as the changeover for Masses.

  • More rooms will also be made available for ministries who would otherwise prefer to meet on Sunday mornings, especially the Legion of Mary members who typically stand outside our rooms waiting for sessions to end. 

  • An important impact for our ministry is that, as the conditions on Saturday afternoons are quieter, catechists will have a more conducive environment to prepare their sessions and welcome the children into deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

The new session timings for 2017 will thus be as follows:

 Level  Current session time (2016):   Proposed Session time (2017): Remarks 
Primary Level (P1-P6)    Saturday, 4.00pm – 5.30pm   Saturday, 4.00pm – 5.30pm  NO CHANGE
Primary Level (P1-P6)  Sunday, 10.00am – 11.30am    Saturday. 1.30pm to 3.00pm    NEW TIME 
Secondary Level (S1-S3/S4)     Saturday, 3.30pm – 5.30pm Saturday, 3.30pm – 5.30pm NO CHANGE 
Secondary Level (S1-S3/S4)  Sunday, 9.45am – 11.45pm  Sunday, 9.45am – 11.45pm NO CHANGE

We trust that there is adequate notice to make any necessary arrangements to allow your children to attend your sessions at the new timings.

We thank you for your understanding.
