Sunday Group
Registration for Sunday Group will take place on Sunday 11th September from 9.10am-9.50am in Hesdin Hall. This is our Parish Religious Education Programme for children who do not attend a Catholic school; we cater for children from Reception to Pre Confirmation (Year 8).

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion 2016/2017
Parents of all children who will be starting YEAR 3 this September, who are registered with Ruislip parish, are invited to attend an information and registration meeting on Tuesday 13th September at 8pm in Hesdin Hall. It is expected that all children who do not attend a Catholic School have completed Year 2: Pre-Communion at Sunday Group before they undertake sacramental preparation. If you would like to volunteer as a catechist for this group please contact Sandra Mace regarding DBS checks before the summer holidays.

The RCIA for this year has finished. Our first meeting of the new ‘term’ will be towards the end of September at 7.00pm in the presbytery. If you know of someone – husband, wife, friend, neighbour who might be interested in exploring whether God may be calling them to become a Catholic, then please ask them to contact Fr Duncan for further information. The important thing to remember is that we are all called to be evangelizers and to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
