The closeness of the Parish Church to the school means that the children can walk up to Church to take part in services, and that visits can easily be arranged to enhance the children’s understanding of the role the Church plays in our everyday school life.
Fr Michael Teader, our Parish Priest, is our chaplain, and often visits school, to celebrate Mass, join us in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or just come for lunch.
He is also a member of our school governing body, chairing both the personnel and admissions committees.
Fr Michael can be contacted either through the school, or via:
St Felix Church

Preparation for First Holy Communion
The school works very closely with the Parish to prepare children for their First Holy Communion. This is an extract for the parish website:
“Our First Holy Communion programme runs each year beginning in October. It is devised and presented by a team of catechists and the parish working with the parents or guardians.
The children attend a weekly class and there are a series of evening sessions for parents enabling them to broaden their own knowledge of the Sacrament thus enabling them to support their children during such an important stage in their faith journey. The families are expected to attend Mass on a regular basis and so become known to the whole parish community who will be ready to offer support and celebrate this great occasion which is the highlight of our parish life.”
