How different it is now when we take our kids to Mass with us, they can receive Holy Communion with the Church. On Sunday, June 7, the day after their First Holy Communion, we all went to Mass at St. Michael’s where they were Baptized this past Easter Vigil. It was beautiful as they were in their communion clothes once again with the faith community that embraced them.
When we first arrived here in Jacmel and started to have Mass with our kids we were the only two who would receive communion. Today we noticed that during our Saturday vigil Mass for kids we had 14 people receive the Lord Jesus in His Body and Blood. We thank God for widening His Tent of our local Church.
