Did you know that the practice of parishioners presenting the bread and wine to the priest dates back to the fifth century? St. Augustine wrote of this tradition. “Lord, receive our gifts in this wonderful exchange: from all you have given us we bring you these gifts, and in return you give us yourself.”
We would like more people to have a chance to participate in this tradition. If you would like to present the gifts at Mass, please take a moment to sign up on the poster in the back of the church. We welcome three or four people each Mass to sign up, you can sign up with a friend, your spouse, your family or the person who sits in the same pew! At your selected Mass, after the Profession of Faith (Creed), meet the ushers in the back of the church and they will instruct you.
