LYDIA: WELCOME: Today we hear about a very special meal that Jesus shared with his friends, a meal that we remember every time we come to Mass. Let’s think some more about this now. Christ Jesus, as we remember how you shared bread and wine with your friends, may we be moved to share our bread with others, so that no one goes hungry. Amen. Please stand and join us for our opening Song

ALEXIE: First Reading: Corinthians 11:23-26
This is a reading from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.
Brothers and sisters,
This is what Jesus did at supper the night before he died. He took bread, and after he gave thanks, he broke the bread and said,
“This is my body, which I am giving for you. When you eat this bread, remember me.”
After supper, he took a cup of wine and said,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood. When you eat this bread and drink from this cup, you are proclaiming the death of the Lord until he comes again. The Word of the Lord


FRANKIE: Today we hear how Jesus got ready to share the Passover meal with his friends. And then, when he was at the meal he broke the bread, blessed it and shared it with his disciples.

KENTON: What happened next?
Jesus took a cup, said a blessing and shared that with his disciples too.

CHARLIE: Every time we come to Mass we remember this – and the priest uses the very same words that Jesus did in this reading. This is a very important moment each week as the parish shares in the bread and wine, the body and blood of Christ.

So each week, we remember a special meal that Jesus had. And each week we are invited to share in that special meal with him, through Holy Communion, even if we only have a blessing.

WILLIAM: One way that we can help each other is by making sure that everyone gets their fair share of the food that God has created for all.

Jesus shared a meal with his friends. And we still share in that meal with him today. How can we also make sure that people get their fair share of food in the world today? 

ASH: As we get ready to go back into Mass, and share in Communion, let’s think about all those in our global family who are hungry, and how we can share with them.

Prayers of the faithful:

LEXI: We pray for the Church throughout the world: that it may encourage all people to come together in peace and unity, to share and to stand up for what is right. Lord, in your mercy…

RUBY: We pray for world leaders: that they may do all that they can to make sure that all people have enough food to eat, and can live free from poverty. Lord, in your mercy…

NGAIRE: We pray for our parish, family and friends: that we may share what we have with others and do what we can so all may have enough to eat. Lord, in your mercy…  

JAMES: Farewell/Closing prayer: Thanks for sharing mass with us today. Jesus, you invite us to share in your table. May we also be willing to share with others, and to make a change so that all people have enough to eat. Amen. Please leave quietly


  1. Charlie has enjoyed sharing her reading with everyone tonight to practise

  2. Great idea to share the mass on your blog. It helps everyone who couldn't be there to experience some of it. Thanks and well done Mrs Burke and awesome Year 2's. God bless you all :)
