After-school Catechism

After-school Catechism


Catechist classes, run by volunteer Catechists, enable children who do not attend St Joseph’s College to receive the Sacraments of Initiation. Once a programme is completed, we do work closely with St Joseph’s College with Parent-child meetings and for the celebration of the actual Sacrament.

Generally there is a class for children of Pre-primary to Year Two, another for the Sacrament of Reconciliation for students generally in Year Three, one for the Sacrament of Holy Communion for students generally in Year Four and one for Year Seven students completing Confirmation.

However from time to time we meet students who do not fit these ‘categories’. We are willing to help them individually or to provide Home Programmes for them to complete.

The Church does allow a ‘Rite of Christian Initiation for Children’ process, which enables students who have missed out in their early years, to complete all sacraments in one year.

When and where

Each Monday during school term time, Catechist classes are held at New Camfield, 154 Aberdeen St, Albany, WA 6330.


Anyone interested in enrolling their child/children for any of the above are asked to complete enrollment forms and to ring for a chat with Anne Smith.
