Good News Club


The Good News Club is where the Gospel is presented to school-going children on Sunday at the 12.00 noon Mass (except for school holidays) in a simple form using, where possible, music, role play or other creative activity to inform the children of the Gospel message for that day.

The priest invites the primary school-going children who are at Mass with their families, if they wish to participate, to follow the Good News Club adult leader as they carry a bible from the altar to the Parish Centre.  After The Prayer of the Faithful, the children rejoin their families in the church often bringing an offering to the altar showcasing the Gospel message.

Anyone can volunteer to help in the Good News Club. There is a job to suit everyone. One guides the children from the church, one listens to Mass and alerts the group when it is time to return to the congregation, others help the children safely down the stairs and one gets involved directly in reading or presenting the Gospel from the children’s bible.


If you feel you have one hour to spare on one Sunday every five weeks, eight hours per year, the Good News Club would love to welcome you as a new member.

Contact Mary 098-26379 or Leonie 098-29001 if you wish to volunteer, or call to the Presbytery.
