Do This in Memory is a parish based programme of preparation for First Communion centred in the parish celebration of the Sunday Eucharist and in the home. The programme resources are designed to facilitate parents, families and the parishes’ active involvement in the preparation for the sacrament.
It complements and supports the work of sacramental preparation in the parish school or the religious education programme in the parish. The programme takes place once a month for several months before First Eucharist and concludes with the parish celebration and procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi.
All the Children who are preparing for Holy Communion in our Parish take part in the Do This in Memory Programme.
Dear parents, teachers and children,
It is that time of year when the parish begins its preparation for the sacraments of First Confession and First Eucharist. Much of the work of preparation is done in school but the parish and the home have an important role to play in helping our children understand what it means to share in Jesus, the Bread of Life for the first time.
We use the parish programme of preparation, ‘Do This in Memory’, to help our children and their families as they prepare for these sacraments. This programme aims to help those in the parish become more actively involved in the sacramental preparation for
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION and The Sacrament of Reconciliation.
There will be a meeting for all parents with their children who are preparing for these Sacrament’s this year on Thursday the 25th of October 2018 at 8pm (duration of meeting 1 hour) in the Glenamoy Community Centre.
Your attendance at this meeting is essential. The time of preparation for sacraments is an opportunity for us all to be renewed and nourished in our own faith journey. We look forward to seeing you on the night and we pray every blessing for you and your families.
Fr Joseph Hogan, Co-ordinator. 086-0734860.
