Parish News and Events

Celebrating the Word of God

Our candidates for sacramental preparation attended Mass on Second Sunday of Ordinary Time for their special liturgy celebrating the Word of God. The  liturgy took place after the Opening Prayer. 

The Celebrant signs each child’s ears with the Sign of the Cross and says: " Hear the Word of God."  The parent signs the child’s lips and says: "Speak the Word of God."  The catechist presents the open lectionary to the child who places his/her hand upon it saying: "We will live the Word of God."  The children were then presented with a copy of St Matthew's Gospel.

Rite of Election

Our children who are preparing for their First Holy Communion celebrated the Rite of Election at their parish liturgy celebrating in the Liturgy of the Eucharist on the third Sunday of Lent.
