The Church is Your Home!
When you come to church, we want you to know that you and your family are welcome here. This is your parish home! You are not a guest or a visitor, you are a part of our family!
Please watch this video with your child as we take a tour of Visitation Parish.
Your 1st Communion!
WHAT TO EXPECT & WHAT TO BRING:
You and your guests should arrive at the church at least 20 minutes before Mass so that everyone can be screened and seated.
Everyone over the age of 2 must wear a face covering. Our hospitality team will ask: Have you been outside of the country? Have you been exposed to anyone with COVID 19?
Your child should wear what you consider to be dress clothes or your “Sunday best”. Most boys wear dress pants with a shirt and tie or a suit. Girls usually wear white. It is entirely up to you what you choose. It is not necessary to go to any great expense.
Please watch this video with your child and practice taking communion.
PRAYERS TO PRACTICE
(TRY SAYING BEFORE BED)
Our Father, who are in heaven, hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come,
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed are you
And blessed is the fruit
of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God
Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
Glory to the Father
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit;
As it was in the beginning,
is now and will be forever.
ACT OF CONTRITION
I love you with all my heart
and I am sorry for my sins.
Please forgive me.
I promise not to sin again.
Help me always
to be more like you.
