1st Eucharist - Rite of Presentation

Children: Most Loving God, you call each of us here around the altar, the table of
the Lord, to share in the Body and Blood of Christ and to be filled with the joy of the
Holy Spirit. Through this Sacred Meal, give us the strength to be a sign of your love
in the world. Be with us and all those who will help us prepare for this most
important Sacrament. This prayer we make through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
