CHILDREN’S LITURGY ONLINE

 

We have restarted the weekly Children’s Liturgy online via the Zoom platform

 

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

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

Please note! Everyone needs to register for the new session! You will receive a new email with individual joining link.

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 on the Children’s/Young People’s page on the website.

 

And here are this week’s – for 13th September, 24th Sunday of the year.

We 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!

We have created a special gallery for the children’s artwork – go along to this page.

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.

 

 

FIRST COMMUNION

The 2020 group:

Earlier in the summer we had a successful end to the preparation sessions via the zoom platform. After waiting so patiently, the children and their families are now looking forward to their being able to celebrate this beautiful sacrament this autumn.

First Holy Communion 2021:

We are now taking registrations for anyone who wishes their child(ren) to prepare to make their First Holy Communion in July 2021. Children should be in Year 4 (or above). For further information and application forms please email Rosanne at fhc@stpeterswinchester.org.uk The deadline for registration is October 20th , which is the last Parents’ Compulsory Session with Fr Mark.

 

 

 

 

CONFIRMATION

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.”
