WHAT IS ‘DO THIS IN MEMORY’?
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 our three 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.
