                               Fasting for Holy Communion - Please be on time!!

A church building is a special place calling for special behaviour. While the church is our home and we should feel comfortable there indeed, the churchis a gathering place for the Church, the people of God that doesnt mean that anything goes. Your actions in church show respect for God and for the community that gathers there. Our actions should respect the place and its purpose.

Disposeof chewing gum, turn off your mobile phone, turn up on time, check that youre appropriately dressed and make the most of the precious opportunity to step away from the ordinary and into a sacred space and time. If you are in the church for mass and you wish to go to communion, remember that Catholics are required to fast for one hour before receiving the Eucharist. This ensures that we are hungry(at least symbolically) for the Eucharist and that we show respect for the Body of Christ. The Eucharist is real food, but it is not ordinary food, and thus we dont mix it in with bites of our ordinary food and drink. Snacking or chewing gum distracts us from the sacred fast that prepares us to receive the Body of Christ. So theres one more reason to lose the gum. Please don't stick it to a kneeler or under the seat!! Please don't leave behind used tissues. It's not fair to our church cleaners.
