St. Monica's Catechetical Ministry

Advanced catechism - Grade 5B


Announcement Board:
It is with regret to inform my students and their parents that the Sunday, 19th January 2020 will be the last class I teach at St. Monica's. A rather limited number of lectures available for teaching together with frequent cancellation of classes without their replacement forced me to reconsider my position as a catechist at St. Monica's parish.

Thank you for understanding
