An Chéad Comaoineach / First Holy Communion

23rd October, 2013

Dear Fellow Parents,

The following are suggestions that you might like to take into account before the next 'Do This in Memory' Mass of your child's preparation for First Holy Communion which is on Saturday 2nd November 2013 at 6.30pm in the Parish Church.

Read the Grapevine Newsletter, the Gospel reading on it is the one that will be used at the Mass.

Encourage your child to read pages 40 and 41 of the Thumb Book and do some colouring.

 Help your child to join in the responses at Mass.

a    Pray and do the actions of the Sign of the Cross.

b.     Priest: The Lord be with you.  Response: And with your Spirit.

c.     At the end of the readings, response:  Thanks be to God.

d.     At the end of the Gospel, response:  Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ (Page 30-32 of the Thumb Book).

It would be good to arrive 10 minutes before Mass starts and to sit up towards the front of the Church.  Bring the Thumb Book

The children will be invited to gather around the Sanctuary to listen to the Gospel and will share in the Homily.

Bring child's Rosary Beads for blessing.

Thank you for your cooperation.

The Parents' Group.
