children

Our children are our most important asset and we are very fortunate in having first class schools and catechists in our parish – all of which helps in building a caring, warm and welcoming community for all.

Children in church…
are always welcome. If, as a parent, you feel a little awkward because your child is more than usually noisy or restless you are most welcome, if you prefer,  to go into the Parish Centre (use the door between church and parish centre in the English Martyrs Chapel). Please feel free to do whatever suits you and your child at any time.
If you need to breastfeed your baby you are welcome to do so.
