Children's Liturgy

Every Sunday, except for school holidays, children are invited to attend Sunday School during the 9:15am Mass. School aged children who have not been Confirmed are welcome to attend. Those who have made their First Holy Communion are in one group and the younger children are in another group. The numbers vary from week to week with an average of approximately twenty-five children. Children return to Mass at the Offertory.

A lesson outline and worksheets are available for each week. The lessons relate to that week’s readings or Gospel and are relevant to the lives of children.

The Children’s Liturgy Group is responsible for the ‘famous’ Christmas Pageant and Christmas Eve Mass. The children also enjoy being an important part of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day morning Masses.

Our volunteers include mums, dads and high school students from various backgrounds. We are always eager to have more help, particularly with the younger children. It is great experience for young people thinking about a career in teaching or for anybody looking for a practical way in which they can contribute to the Parish.

Our aim is to provide the children of Our Lady of Fatima Peakhurst with a sense of belonging in an environment that is often just adult-orientated. New children to the parish or occasional visitors are welcome to attend Sunday School and if you would like to find out more about becoming a helper we would love to hear from you.

With few Priests available to do the work, she travels the length of the Wilcannia-Forbes diocese in rural NSW hatching, matching, dispatching & providing pastoral care. Compass (on ABC) explores the interface between religion and life as experienced by individuals and communities - from ordinary Australians, public leaders, religious thinkers and philosophers. Our parish is Lending A Hand to the drought-stricken diocese.

Soaring with the Swans

Fr Adam Crouch says he is one of the luckiest people around, being able to live out his two passions - faith and football.
