Family Catechism: Families, Faith and Fellowship

“Catechesis is, essentially, the formation in the life of Faith from the first proclamation of the Gospel Message, continuing through growth in prayer and the preparation for the Sacraments and then, through a journey of ever-deepening understanding of the ways of Faith throughout the whole of life.” (The Word Who Is Life: the Pastoral Plan), 7)

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19

Worth Parish is delighted to launch its new Family Formation Pathway, accompanying families from the moment they begin preparing to have their children baptised, up until Confirmation and beyond.


All Saints: This group for six-nine year olds and their families will replace the First Holy Communion Programme as we know it. This will enable children to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist when they are spiritually ready rather than when they reach a particular academic year.



Inspired: Helping teens discover what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, and supporting parents to respond to some of the bigger questions they may be asking. This group will replace the Confirmation programme, allowing young people to receive the Sacrament when they feel called to respond to the Lord by saying yes to this significant milestone in their faith journey.



All Saints and Inspired are held on the 3rd Sunday of the month in Compass House following the 9.30am Mass.


Faith Alive: a youth group for 9-12 year olds, helping them learn how to put their faith into action as well as enabling them to grow in friendship with other young Catholics. The sessions will involve fun and games for the kids, as well as an opportunity to explore prayer. Parents aren’t left out either, there are activities planned for them too!




Parish Brunches: everyone is invited on the Second Sunday of each month to join in with this ever-popular opportunity to grow in friendship with each other. Christian fellowship is more important than ever in our increasingly more secular society.
