First Holy Communion
|First Holy Communion is, without question, a time of great joy. The saints in heaven, who are delighted to intercede for us, are celebrating along with your family. |
Jesus comes to us in a unique way in the Eucharist. When He comes, we receive Him into our body and our soul. This is very beautiful, personal, and intimate. We should not take it for granted!
This is why the first time a family member makes their Holy Communion, it is an exciting event for the whole family. Your son or daughter preparing for this sacrament is going to be profoundly united with Jesus in a way that they never have before!
Congratulations to all those who received their First Holy Communion on May 1st, 2021.
