From the passing on the faith project we are hoping
From the ‘one’ parishPassing on the Faith Project we are hoping….

To really hear all 3 voices

  • Teachers

  • the parish

  • family

    For example: to build on work

Engaging with the parents of children in Catholic primary schools – finding new ways…..

Eg… 1st Holy Communion parents: work with parents and empower parents to work with children

eg…to invite them to remain connected with the Parish at the point of departure from Primary School


Word of god listening community life belonging mass celebrating family school life living
Word of God ‘one’ parish – listeningCommunity life – belonging Mass – celebratingFamily & school life – living

RCIA as model for Catechesis/Passing on our Faith: ENABLING OUR FAMILIES

You belong
You Belong…. ‘one’ parish

  • The rhythm of life in the Church goes on, Sunday after Sunday after Sunday…like a heart beat, pumping life around the Body…

  • God speaks – words of encouragement and healing, comfort and peace…..

  • God feeds us – with Word and the bread and the cup of life!

  • Beyond our understanding…

  • Little by little we are changed and become the people we are made to be, fully human, fully alive!

And jesus continues to invite you
And Jesus continues to invite you ‘one’ parish

  • To belong – you and your children

  • You are part of US and we are incomplete without you!

  • You said ‘Yes’ for your children – do you mean it?....

  • Your children said Yes, and need your support to continue their own pathway in faith

How can we continue to support you as families and you us
How can we continue to support you as families? And you us? ‘one’ parish

  • In the Parish…..

  • Come to Mass – the support you receive in the Mass is beyond words and understanding and is very REAL

  • Pop into Church for a quiet prayer from time to time

  • Keep in touch with each other – support each other as parents

  • Look out for others who need your help
