St Johns Parish Waterford - Do This in Memory Programme
 
First Holy Communion "Do This in Memory"
 
Do This in Memory  was developed to meet a need for parish-based pre-sacramental resources which would give parents, children and the
parish community the opportunity to prepare for First Eucharistic.
 
 
 
 
 
 
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 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.
 
From September 2015 parishes will be using Do This in Memory 3: Liturgical Years B/C. The dates for the year can be downloaded here.
