June 2014: First Holy Communion of Caitlin, Carys, Erin and Ethan
In June of this year, four of the children from our parish made their First Holy Communions at our regular Sunday morning mass. Caitlin, Carys, Erin and Ethan had been preparing with weekly classes since January. They’re a lively bunch so along with the learning there was plenty of fun and laughter along the way! The mass was a family celebration – both with the children’s friends and families who attended, and with the wider family of the parish. The children and family members did the readings and
brought the gifts for the offertory, and the children helped to choose the hymns, and led the congregation in singing the communion hymn.. After the mass, everyone gathered in the Parish Room for refreshments and cake. Many thanks to everyone in the parish who helped with the mass and celebration, to the children’s guests for attending, to the parents for making sure the children came to class each week, and to Ethan, Erin, Carys and Caitlin for their hard work and their big smiles!
