Sunday Catechesis Programme

Sunday Catechesis Programme


In October 2019, Dominican friars based in St Saviours Priory, Dublin, in conjunction with a group of parents got together to set up a Sunday Catechesis Programme. The Programme commenced in October 2019 and continued until March 2020 when Covid 19 restrictions came into place.

The Sunday Catechesis consists of three individual Programmes as follows:

  • 3- 6 years (follow the Good Shepherd Programme)
  • 6- 9 years
  • 10 + years

Each programme runs for approximately six weeks followed by a break.


Parents and Dominicans friars jointly deliver the children and young person’s programme.

To deliver the Catechesis Programme, all personnel involved must be Garda vetted and have completed the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church in Ireland one day safeguarding training programme.
