The 28th January - 3rd February is Catholic Education Week. This year marks 100 years since the Education Act that saw Catholic Education become part of the state sector.
On Sunday, 4th February, the children of St. Mary’s Primary will lead the liturgy at 9am Mass.
We will welcome the children of Primary Four who are preparing for first Holy Communion at the 09:00 Mass for the Rite of the Presentation of the Gospel.
They will be presented with a book of the Gospels as they continue on their journey towards meeting Jesus for the first time in the Blessed Sacrament.
Please keep these children in your prayers.
Please note that parents with children in P3 and P4 next year should pick up a copy of the programme for sacramental initiation which is available at the back of the Cathedral, along with registration forms for sacramental intiation.
The first all-important event in this programme will be the initial parents' meetings which will be on Thursday 7th September for parents of P3, and Thursday 14th September for P4, both at 6.30pm in the Cathedral Hall. Please put these dates in your diaries and also pass this on to any parents who have children in these classes but who may not be here.
