St Joseph's Catholic Church, Oakham


We are urgently looking for volunteers to join the children’s liturgy group as catechists.

Thankfully we have an excellent and loyal team of helpers, but from next term there will only be two catechists left doing this worth while job. The role of the catechist is to help children to understand the Sunday Gospel and thus to learn about God and Jesus.

We do this by reading and discussing the Gospel and through prayers and activities. It is interesting for both the children and the catechists. We know that new recruits settle in quickly and enjoy their task.

Unfortunately, as there are only two of us, after Easter we will have to limit the sessions to two per month. This is not an ideal situation – just having two more catechists would help significantly to keep continuity, although the more the better. Please think about joining us, so that we can keep the children’s liturgy going.

Anyone who is interested is welcome – you don’t have to be a parent. Lots of help will be given. Please see or contact me (07788503243) or see Fr Stephen. Thankyou very much. Hanna Coomber
