Catechesis 1st to 7th grade - Norwegian speaking

For children in grades 1st to 7th, we have catechesis in Norwegian one Saturday a month. At the catechesis, the children learn about the Catholic Church's faith, and it gives the children the opportunity to create a Catholic community with children of their own age.

For children and young people to have a good and close relationship with the faith and the church, the cooperation between church and home is absolutely necessary. We therefore encourage adults and children to regularly attend the Mass together, also in catechesis Masses!


First Holy Communion

For children who are to receive the first holy communion, the compulsory catechesis starts in the 2nd grade and lasts until the 3rd grade. Before the first communion you must send in "Førstekommunionsmelding" / "Notice of 1st Holy Communion". For children baptized in other countries than Norway, we also need the batismal certificate. 


Catechesis 1st to 7th grade

In St. Svithun it is possible to choose between two groups in the Norwegian catechesis:

- Group 1 begins with catechesis at. 10.00 - Mass at 12.00 (finished at 13.00)

- Group 2 begins with Mass at 12.00 - catechesis to kl. 15.00



The catechesis fee is NOK 400 for one child and NOK 500 for a family.
