First Holy Communion – a Special Day!

Nine of our parish children made their First Holy Communion at a special Mass celebrated yesterday (5 December 2020). Although numbers were severely restricted to the children and some family due to the current pandemic, many others were able to join them in spirit through the live-stream.

It was the delayed culmination of a long period of preparation but, as Fr John told the children, it marks not an end but the beginning of a new phase in their relation with God. 

Congratulations to children and parents, as well as those who accompanied and helped them through this journey; and we look forward to celebrating this joyous milestone with the children and families in proper communal style when we finally can!
