Communion 2020: Preparing at Home

Welcome to our new section “Communion 2020: Preparing at Home”. In these strange times, we want you and your family to be ready for when the day of Receiving Holy Communion for the First Time finally comes around. We have created some helps to keep you going on all the wonderful work achieved over the last few months. In these 4 sessions, you’ll learn about the Mass, Prayer and Creation. More importantly, in Session 2, you’ll get the chance to practice all your Mass responses with Fr Michael! You can spend as much time as you want with this, but the more time you spend, the better you’ll be prepared.

Some notes: The sessions can be viewed in different ways depending on the device you have. If you are using the complete PowerPoint, when you download, click “Read Only” to open. If you are using the PDF, the audio and videos can be played along with it. The activity sheets are there to help, but if you can’t print, you can use any page you have in the house. If you have any problems accessing the materials, contact Natalie. Have fun and let’s dive in…
