Children’s Liturgy online is very much up and running now. We look forward to seeing you all again at 9:30am this Sunday. It’s not too late to register! Come and join us to pray, sing, listen and discuss the Gospel.

The sessions take place at 9:30am – 9:50am on Sundays,  so you are then free to join in with the 10am live streamed Mass if you wish.

To make the sessions as secure as possible, you will need to pre-register:


You will then receive an email with an individual ID (please don’t share this with anyone) and a few safeguarding reminders.

Links for colouring sheets will be put up in advance here on the website each weekend.

We’d love to see any colouring or pictures your children produce, inspired by the Mass: please send them in here or via our Facebook page so we can share them with parishioners and others – everyone loves to see them!

Also from the Facebook page – Fr Mark every week gives shoutouts during the 10 am Mass to anyone who asks – just put your name down there.

‘We  talked about how important love was, how God is love, how Jesus loved us by dying on the cross and rising again for us, and the greatest commandment which encompasses all the others – to love God and others as He has loved us.’



The children followed in the footsteps of Jesus:



For the current group, we are now part way through the remaining sessions (which are going well).

Meanwhile, for FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2020-2021  there will be an
Information Evening on  Tuesday July 21st 8pm.

This is for next year’s programme, for families with children who are currently in school Year 3 or
above. It will take place  on the Zoom platform, and will be
a chance to hear about the programme, an opportunity to ask any questions you may
have, and to indicate if you would like the registration pack sent to you.

If you would like to attend, please email fhc@stpeterswinchester.org.uk for details of how
to join the meeting via Zoom. We look forward to seeing you there.





Bishop Philip says: “After consultation and considering the various options, I have decided the best thing for us to do in the present circumstances is to postpone all the Confirmations planned for this year, 2020, until next year, 2021. This means that those planning Confirmations for 2021 will be asked to wait until 2022. I am sorry that this will be disappointing for many, but it seemed easiest in terms of preparations, catechesis and all the arrangements. I am going to send a Letter to the candidates explaining the situation but encouraging them to look forward to receiving this Sacrament in a year’s time.”
