Do This in Memory of Me Programme




As part of the parish formation programme for First Holy Communion, it was decided to initiate the DO THIS IN MEMORY series of masses for children in second class and their parents.

We have successfully completed 4 years of this programme with the communion classes of 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015. These masses ensure that the parish, along with both the home and school play its part in the children's preparation in the months leading up to that important day, all  within the context of the Sunday parish celebration.  These masses have a large input from the parents, all of whom give of their time freely, to meet and arrange the next months mass. These meetings take place in St. Marys room.

The boys and girls who are are making First Holy Communion this year and their parents commit to attending 6 special Sunday masses (6 before First Communion and one after). The children also have a special dedicated prayer space in the church.  Dates of the masses are listed below. The masses are at 11.30 AM
