FAITH & FAMILY MASS
Here at Notre Dame Parish we truly believe: “One body, one spirit in Christ”
This is our belief as Catholic Christians and what we profess at every Mass and this is what we at Notre Dame strive to put into practice.
We believe that we celebrate Mass as a family and that our youth are an integral part of the parish family.
So it is in this sense of ‘family’ that we practice and invite our youth from all of our programs:
Religious Education, Notre Dame School and Home-school to participate in our ‘Faith and Family Mass’.
Each month our Faith and Family Mass is hosted by a particular grade level: Grades 3-6.
There are several roles in which the students will be asked by their teachers to participate:
Contact: Nena Lavoie - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
PARENTS: For the students who will be doing the readings please practice the readings with your child until they feel
READERS: Rehearse speaking clearly, slowly, and with volume with face looking forward and not down to the lectionary or podium.
We will cover the rubrics of processing in, approaching the altar, etc. at the 9:00am preparation meeting the day of
the Faith and Family Mass.
PARENTS: Please have your child at church no later than 9:00am so we may rehearse your child's role so they feel
comfortable and calm.
We asked for you to plan to be part of the Mass as well.
Know that we pray for each student and their families as we prepare together to celebrate Mass as ‘One in Christ’.
