The Catholic community in Wokingham was established as a parish in 1902, and the present church dates from 1970. It is situated in the centre of the town. Like all Catholic parishes throughout the world, its life is centred around the Sunday celebration of the Mass.
Here, people thank God for all that God does for us and they commit themselves to living a Christian life, particularly proclaiming the gospel to the whole world. The parish includes people from many other countries: India, Argentina, Spain, France, Germany, Slovakia, Russia, The United States of America, Vietnam, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, the Philippines, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Italy, Poland as well as Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The Corpus Christi Parish Pantomime Group is a social group from the Corpus Christi RC Church Wokingham, involving people as young as 11 and some even in their 60s. The all-amateur group get involved in every aspect of the performance from writing the script to sorting the sound, lighting, costume, and make-up. They are always looking for new members so if you fancy getting involved either on stage or back stage contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Parish Toddler Group offers a friendly welcome to parents and carers with their babies and toddlers, of 3 years old and under, at their Wednesday morning sessions held during the school term.
The group, which has been running since 1989, provides a safe place for children to mix and adults to meet in the pleasant surroundings of the Keenan Rooms.
We are equipped with tables and chairs and a wide range of toys to suit this age range - ride-on, push-along, puzzles and several smaller items grouped in different areas for imaginative play. These are all stored on site.
Our sessions which run from 10 am to 11.30 am begin with free play and a craft activity in which we encourage the adults as well as the little ones to take part.
A snack of different fruits is served to the children midway followed by tea or coffee and biscuits to the adults.
After the toys are cleared away, the session ends with a communal singing activity and sometimes a story.
We ask for a contribution of £1.50 (with 50p for an extra child) which covers our running costs and any special celebrations such as the Christmas and Easter parties. We make donations from any excess to a suitable charity.
When we resume in the aftermath of the pandemic, changes may be necessary in our routines. Start dates will be advertised in the parish newsletter.
We would welcome any support or occasional help from within the group or wider parish community. If you are interested, please contact us via the parish office
St. Teresa's Catholic Academy
At St. Teresa’s our vision, Safe, Happy and Successful Together with God, underpins all that we do. The children’s relationship with God begins as soon as they join us and it visibly develops as they progress through the school.
We are very lucky to have our parish church, Corpus Christi, situated within our school grounds which enables us to develop close links with all members of our parish. Canon Simon, our parish priest, is a regular visitor to our classes and the children enjoy celebrating and participating in school Masses in church.
There is a real sense of community within our school. Everyone is valued for their contributions to our schools success and our dedicated staff work wholeheartedly as a team, for the benefit of all the children in our care. Our pupils are eager to learn and our exciting, creative curriculum motivates them as learners and leads them towards fulfilling their full academic potential.
We encourage our children to have a Growth Mindset, demonstrating resilience and perseverance in order to succeed. Our aim is for every child to leave St Teresa’s as a confident and independent learner, equipped with all the life skills necessary to achieve success in every aspect of life. To learn more about us, please visit our school – I’m sure you will be impressed by what you see.
