SUNDAY SCHOOL - Coming to Know Jesus Better

All children in Years 3 to 10 are welcome to join Sunday School which runs from 9.30 am to 10.25 am every Sunday during school term, with holidays coinciding with the Victorian State School holidays. 

As learning about our faith is a life-long journey, attendance at Sunday School is expected throughout the year in order that the children may grow in their Catholic faith, build a strong relationship with God and live out their faith in fellowship with our community here at St Christopher’s. 

Children are welcome to join Sunday School at any time during the year.

The children are also prepared for the Sacraments.                                                           

The Sacraments will next be celebrated as follows: 

  • First Reconciliation (Confession) in August 2018 
  • First Eucharist (Communion) in June 2019.

As in previous years, Years 3 & 4 children will be using the CHRIST OUR LIGHT AND LIFE workbook and the GRATIA Series workbook in preparation for First Reconciliation.

The Years 5 & 6 children will start off the year with the FAITH IN ACTION Programme followed by the SEEKING TO LIVE THE GOOD NEWS workbook, published by the Archdiocese of Melbourne, specifically for use in Catholic Parishes.

The Secondary School Programme for this year will comprise FREEDOM RIDE (12 Lessons of Faith For Today’s Teens),                                 a Faith Journal and Videos & Discussions on YouCat - THE YOUTH CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

We have introduced FAITH IN ACTION and FREEDOM RIDE with the view of equipping the children  and boosting their confidence in living out their faith in their everyday lives.
