Do This In Memory

Enrolment Sunday for this year’s First Holy Communion programme was on 24th September. At the 10.30am Mass, the parents and children were presented to the community, invited to promise to participate in the programme and asked to renew their Baptismal Promises with the parish community.

This journey is not just for the children and their parents. As a community, we are called to affirm and support each other in our faith. We make this journey of faith together in the shelter of one another – we cannot do it alone. The parents and children who join us on Enrolment Sunday need our encouragement and prayers. At the Last Supper, Jesus asked us to ‘do this in memory of me’. Each group of children who prepare for First Holy Communion help us all to remain faithful to that promise.


The Do This In Memory programme aims to involve parents, parish leaders and the wider parish community in preparing children for First Eucharist. The sacramental preparation of children is the responsibility of the home, school and parish working together in partnership. Together with Baptism and Confirmation, the celebration of First Eucharist opens the door to full membership of the Christian community.

Loving God,
We call to mind the children who will prepare for First Eucharist during the coming year and all who care for them. We ask your blessing on all of them and on all of us gathered here. May we always walk as children of the light and be prepared to share that light with those whom we meet.
