Our parish use the "Family Style" for First Eucharist. Then, first Saturday in
May, we have all of the children come together for Solemn Celebration. We are a
small parish...15 to 30 children. Each Sunday for several weeks there are
anywhere from 1 to 5 communicants at the weekend Mass. Because we do not have
the tradition group First Eucharist, we avoid overshadowing receiving the body
and blood of Jesus Christ for the "party."

Subject: [dre-talk] First Eucharist Masses
Because we have such a large parish and so many children making their First
Eucharist, we celebrate at separate Masses rather than our regular Sunday
liturgies. In the past, children have sat with their parents, but we are
thinking of changing this to having the children sit together. Any thoughts?
