First Holy Communion

06 Jun

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! 😃

    Sr. Marilyn, thank you so much for sharing this lovely day for these sweet, adorable children. I am so grateful for the good news. If you get a chance, let me know how many boys and girls took first communion, perhaps I could send each a small gift. If you have any ideas, gift wise, let me know, as well as address I should send.

    We are here for God, Love Absolute
