To Our Families,

  1. Entering the Church, using the Holy Water and making the Sign of the Cross Prayer, reminds us that we were baptized with water and belong to God’s Family.
  2. Genuflecting; this is a gesture of Adoration that we make to the presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
  3. Bowing: Gesture of Reverence, Honor and Respect.
  4. Bowing before receiving Communion from the priest.  This is a sign of reverence and belief in Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
  5. Rite of peace: to show we are committed to sharing Christ’s peace.
  6. Standing is a sign of respect and honor to our God, the Heavenly Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  7. Sitting is a posture of attentive listening and meditation.

We participate in the liturgy more attentively and respectfully when we observe these reminders.
