On Saturday, June 6, we celebrated the first Holy Communion of ten of our kids–8 boys and 2 girls. It was a long-awaited day; they have been preparing for the past two years for their Baptism, Reconciliation and now Eucharist. Over 100 people participated in the celebration, including family and friends of our communicants. The presence of the Lord was real and present in our midst, especially as these young people received Jesus for the first time.
After Mass, Sr. Victoria and the Madonna University volunteers helped us to distribute popcorn, cupcakes and soda to all! Pictures were taken of the new communicants with their families. It truly was the day the Lord had made; all were rejoicing and glad! 😃
