Catechesis 1st to 7th grade

We have catechesis for children in 1st to 7th grade on the first Saturday every month. Our classes teaches the children the Catholic faith, and they give them the opportunity to engage in a fellowship of Catholic children of their own age.

In order for children and young people to have a life-giving relationship with God and the church, cooperation between the church and the home is absolutely necessary. We therefore encourage you to go to masses together regularly, also on the days of catechesis!
