Family Catechism Days
Family Catechism Days are usually held at St Mary’s Shrine on the 3rd Thursday of each month (but please check our blog / bulletin for current details). Parents are invited with their children to bring a picnic lunch and join us to eat together if weather allows in the priory garden (or else indoors) around 1pm, that is, following the 12:10pm Holy Mass.
A half-hour catechism class given by an FSSP priest or seminarian starts at 2pm for the children, followed by another class at 2:30pm for the adults. Very small children can skip the classes, engaging instead in crafts or games with volunteers from among the parents. The course of classes follows the summary sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
