Faith Formation for Children & Youth
'The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy with Jesus Christ: only He can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity'. – Pope John Paul II; Catechesi Tradendae #5
Catechesis is one of the most important ministries in the church as we share our faith and knowledge with our children and youth. The word “catechesis” comes from a Greek word meaning “to echo” or “hand-down what has been received”. Our program therefore continues sowing the seeds by proclaiming through voice and action- the Word of God.
The following are the Catechetical Ministries in the parish:
Weekend Catechetical Program (WeCat)
Confraternity of the Christian Doctrine (CCD)
Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS)
Leading Little Ones to God (LLOTG)
Liturgy of the Word for Children

On 14 Dec 2020, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce announced that Phase Three of Re-Opening will commence from 28 Dec 2020.
Other Religious Activities
ROs may use places of worship to conduct religious rites and other religious activities (e.g. pastoral services, religious classes for adults and children) so long as they are conducted in gatherings not exceeding 50 persons, subject to safe distancing and other safe management measures appropriate to the nature of the religious activity. This is also subject to the total premise cap of 150 persons (see paragraph 16).
a. Each religious class must not exceed 50 persons, including the religious worker/teacher11 (and supporting workers, if any). As a best practice, we encourage a greater separation of 2 metres between groups of students attending religious classes.
As such, we are working towards bringing back the Secondary cohorts back to the parish for face-to-face sessions, along with Zoom sessions.
Due to the constraints set by the premise cap of 150 people at a time, we have to coordinate amongst the different levels. For the time being, we will work with the Secondary level first, before moving to the Primary level. Do look out for communication from your child/teen’s catechetical team for more details.
The Catechetical Term is starting on the weekend of 27/28 February till the weekend of 13/14 December 2021.
We ask for your patience and understanding in this matter. Please continue to pray for all who are affected and for the situation to stabilise so that we can return to normalcy.
