These classes are designed to introduce children to faith in Jesus Christ, and to help them to participate more fully in the life of the Church.

They are for:

  • Children in year 2 and above who do not attend a Catholic school and are not sufficiently prepared to join the First Communion Programme.
  • Older children preparing for the Sacrament of Baptism.

Classes run from 6-7pm on Friday evenings in the Challoner Room (entrance via the Presbytery).


Application forms are available from Reception during office hours. Please contact Sybil Lee sybillee [at] rcdow [dot] org [dot] uk with any queries.

Please contact Sybil Lee sybillee [at] rcdow [dot] org [dot] uk or call the presbytery (020 8363 2569) and leave a message for Sybil.
