|First Communion Program - Do This in Memory|
'Do this in Memory' is a parish-based sacramental preparation program for First Eucharist. Currently there are 61 children from both St Louis & RMDS involved in the program in Rathmines.
Whilst the schools have a huge part to play, they can no longer be expected to carry out the task alone. Home and Parish have roles to play too. The Do This In Memory programme has been devised to offer parents and parish the opportunity to carry out these roles more fully.
It involves a commitment of bringing your child to a special Mass once a month throughout the year.
The 'You Shall be my Witnesses Program' is a Parish based program that aids parents and children prepare for the sacrament of Confirmation. This year in our Parish there is over 60 children fro St. Louis Senior School and Ranelagh Multi-denominational participating in the program.
Funerals are usually booked through contact with the undertakers, who will in turn contact the parish office and the Parish Priest.
The parish of Rathmines has a trained and active Funeral Ministry team will be available accompany and support you through this sad and difficult time in whatever way we can in preparing the Funeral Liturgy.
