Mar. 2 - Apr. 27 All First Communicant families gather for Sunday Mass (9:30 a.m. in Church)
FIRST COMMUNION INVESTITURE REMINDER
Sunday, March 2nd at the 9:30 a.m. Mass, parents and children preparing for the sacred event of First Communion will take part in the celebration of Investiture.
Investiture is a commitment made by parents to nurture their child in the faith formation and preparations of receiving the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus. Children will also be addressed by asking their readiness in beginning the journey towards First Eucharist. Furthermore, the community will pledge to offer loving support and prayers throughout the process and beyond.
Upon arrival, families may sit wherever they wish but are encouraged to avoid sitting in the very back. Following the homily, Mrs. Huff will be calling forth parents and children to the altar steps. Parents should plan to stand behind their child, placing your hand on their shoulder as an outward sign of your role as the primary educators and formers of your children.
We look forward to seeing you!
