Our High Spirits group is for families with children who attend non-Catholic schools but who still wish to complete Catholic sacraments. To enrol in the program there is an expectation that families will attend Mass regularly and in particular that the children will take part in Children’s Liturgy, at either 6.00pm Saturday night Mass or 10.30am Sunday morning Mass. The High Spirits sacramental classes are run after school on Monday afternoons. Sacraments are celebrated with the Holy Spirit School children and for each program we join with the Holy Spirit school families for an information night and a children’s workshop, the remainder of our classes are taught in the Parish House.
