an exciting new resource: a website for 'tweenagers' (10-13 year olds!).
The site will be highly attractive and interactive, facilitating young people exploring their faith in a relevant and exciting way.
Whilst this site will be a place where young catholics will grow in confidence in their faith and the sharing of their faith, it will also

Although the content of the site will have connections with the RE curricula, it will essentially be an aid to family-based faith development.
For more information, or if you would like to be involved in the development of the site, please email us.
