Our Sacramental preparation programme is based within the Parish of St Augustine's and follows the model requested by Bishop Marcus, one of Family Catechesis. As a school, we support the programme wholeheartedly and work alongside Catachists from the parish to ensure our children are well prepared.
Applications forms are available at church and school and are returned to Fr Ghebreyesus Woldekidan.
