“Do this in memory of Me” Mass ... frequently asked questions by young children about the Mass. What do we do at Mass?There’s a special name for all the people who gather together for Mass. They are called the Assembly. Everyone in the Assembly helps to make the Mass a celebration of God’s love for us by: joining in the prayers; standing, kneeling & sitting at the right times; singing; listening carefully; offering our gifts to be shared; coming to the altar to receive communion or a blessing. In other words, we are all part of the action! In church language this is called ‘full, active & conscious participation.’
