Do This In Memory

The next Mass for the Do This in Memory programme will be at 10.30 am on Sunday 25th February. We are now in the season of Lent, a 40-day period of preparation for the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday. It is a time of reconciliation, when we make space in our lives to think about our relationship with our heavenly Father and the ways in which we respond or fail to respond to his love and care for us.

In celebrating the Sacrament of Penance, we know that God loves us and always forgives us. When we come to share in the Bread of Life we meet Jesus in a very special way.

In spending time with Jesus, we too are offered the chance to transform our lives. Lent gives us an opportunity to focus on prayer, fasting and almsgiving. We show our concern for the poor and are called to works of charity and justice.

Eucharist

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.
