The program provides religious education for Parish children from Year 2 to Year 6 who attend schools other than St. Simon’s.

Classes occur at St. Simon’s Parish every Tuesday during school term (unless otherwise notified) and are conducted from 4.00pm to 5.00pm.

The children spend 50 minutes with their Catechist. They gather together regularly with all the ASRE children and catechists for communal prayer, based around a particular focus, and led by a catechist and their children, in the Parish Church.

The program aims to:

  • Share our love of, and belief in God with the children
  • Create an awareness of God’s presence in their lives
  • Provide opportunities to develop their faith
  • Teach them about Jesus’ life, actions and teachings
  • Share scripture with them
  • give them a sense of belonging to the catholic community
  • teach them about some of our catholic traditions
  • provide informal and formal opportunities to pray using speech, singing, imagination and dramatisation.
