    I’m a second grade teacher, so I’ll be at different parishes in the area for First Communions this week and next week. This week, I visited the “step-child” parish of the diocese (according to a parishioner I was talking with). It’s very modern (no crucifix, movable seats that are set up in a circle around the altar during Mass, modern instrumentation). Next week, I’ll be at the Cathedral parish so I’ll be getting the total opposite experience I’m sure. Anyway…

    Gathering: Here at This Table (Whitaker)

    Sprinkling: ??? (There was no printed music for me to get the song name and composer and I can’t remember enough of it to find it online, but there was a lot of clapping going on.)
    Mass Setting: Mass of Glory (Hurd/Canedo) (More clapping during the Gloria!)
    Psalm: Shepherd Me, O God (Haugen)

    Gifts: We Will Rise Again (Haas)

    Communion: One Bread, One Body (Foley)
    Fly Like a Bird (Canedo)

    Closing: Go Make a Difference (Angrisano) (You guessed it! More clapping!)

      Full, conscious and active participation – if the kids are clapping in the right place they are at least engaged I suppose. Isn’t it the second grade teachers who teach them to clap in the songs anyway?!

      First communion in the cathedral sounds daunting -best of luck.

        I try to do hand motions and contemporary songs as much as possible when they fit with our religion lessons. They love the hand motions I taught them for Though the Mountains May Fall. Unfortunately, teaching at the Cathedral’s parish school means school masses will never (probably) use that particular song. On another note, I finally remembered the sprinkling song. It was Let the River Flow by Darrell Evens taken at a quick tempo to allow for clapping! 🙂
