"Do this in remembrance of Me."
DO THIS IN MEMORY
We are committed to giving parents, the first educators in the faith, the tools to help them raise their children in the faith, and godparents an understanding of how to support the parents in this task.
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.
The programme takes place once a month for nine months before First Eucharist and concludes during the parish celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi.
The programme will be initiated by inviting parents of first communion children to a meeting in each of the two schools in the parish to outline the programme to them and invite parent representatives to form a committee to organise and plan the programme for the year. Parental involvement is the key to the success of the programme.
