Since September 2014, Year 7 and 8 children in our parish have been meeting once a month (on different nights) in the church hall on a Sunday evening for an hour. These meetings are informal, with no other purpose than to catch up and reunite with friends – now that they are all at different secondary schools and with many no longer attending a Catholic school.
Year 7 brings so many changes and it is often the only opportunity to enjoy the company of old friends from primary school. In September, the third group of Year 7’s will begin alongside the first group of Year 9’s. The group was named The Gathering – providing a place and a time to catch up with each other within our parish.
