So I attended a neighboring (two hours away) parish for Mass this Sunday and for First Communion they had the First Communicants get up on the apse (in front of the altar) and do a little song and dance. This happened after the procession to the altar but prior to the point where the priest greets the congregation.
I’m not looking for abuses or freaking out, I just thought it was a little odd. I’ve never seen anything like it!
Does your parish do this with the kids for First Communion or is this particular parish just special?
