Tuistí Rang 2 - An Chéad Chomaoineach / First Holy Communion

Dear Parents,
Our next  ‘Do this in Memory’ Mass will be held on:
·         Sunday, 21st February 2016 at 10:00 AM, for Dunderrow and Gaelscoil
It is the second Sunday of Lent. The word Lent is an old English word for Spring – the days ‘lengthening’. It is about making a fresh start. It is about spring-cleaning, getting rid of bad habits.
Please read with your child page 56 – 57 of the Thumb Book and do the colouring.
The space in front of the Altar at the ‘Do This in Memory’ Mass will have the Ashes of Ash Wednesday, a Trocaire Box and a purple cloth.
The theme of the Mass is the Transfiguration of Jesus on Mount Tabor – it is about taking time out and listening to the voice of God. In the Gospel the voice of God says Jesus is his Son, ‘listen to Him.’
Please encourage your child to pray aloud the responses at Mass with you.
Please pick up the Grapevine after Mass. It explains about First Penance which your child will soon be celebrating.
The children will make their First Penance on:
·         Monday, 29th February 2016 at 7 p.m., for Dunderrow, Summercove, and Scoil Naomh Eltin
·         Monday, 7th March 2016 at 7 p.m., for the Gaelscoil.

We look forward to seeing you.

Yours sincerely,

Fr. Robert and the Parents Coordinating Group
