Services & Activities

Parish Groups and Members

SKCP Office and trained members help to establish SKCP Parish Groups at Parishes in target communities. Parish Groups are trained in various Modules, which cover a variety of relevant topics to equip members to identify and address the needs of OVC and families in their communities. Once trained, members provide children and families in their communities with a range of services. Members are provided with on-going mentorship and support from the SKCP office. Activities organised for members include retreats, excursions, movement gatherings and an annual Thanksgiving Mass, which is celebrated by the Archbishop.
