1

Create a PowerPoint presentation of the invitations and responses said during the Liturgy of the Word. Pay particular attention to words that have changed. Use the presentation to practise and correct responses.

Include in your PowerPoint presentation the actions, postures and gestures you should be undertaking when responding.

Now watch the video of this part of the Mass again, paying particular attention to the spoken and physical responses from the assembly.

 


For Reflection

  • Read the words of the dismissals quietly. What do you think they mean? Is there an action here?
