‘Do This In Memory’ - First Communion Programme
Sometimes, just before the end of Mass, the priest will read a list of things that are happening in the community during the coming week. This reminds us of the importance of the community in which we live. It also reminds us that God’s family doesn’t just come together on a Sunday in God’s house but that there are lots of other times when we gather together. The community might get together for fun, for sporting activities, to help those who are in need or to learn more about their faith. Whenever we gather we must remember that we are part of God’s family.
