First Communion 2012

In these documents below, prepared by the Diocesan Liturgy Resource Centre in consultation with the Education Secretariat, you'll find help in preparing the Ceremony Text as per the New Missal and a list of Hymns suitable for the First Communion Mass. In the year of the International Eucharistic Congress 2012, it would be terrific if the Congress anthem "Though we are Many"  - could be sung as one of the hymns when the children are processing forward to receive Holy Communion. Music, MP3 and text all downloadable at: http://www.iec2012.ie/index.jsp?p=160&n=170 A draft Protocol in relation to First Communion will be issued shortly to parishes and schools. We invite your feedback on the issues that will be addressed in this publication.
