Our Lady is looking especially beautiful this morning adorned with her May crown. Thank you very much to our flower arrangers who did a wonderful job in creating such a fitting adornment for Our Lady.
It was particularly apt this morning as we celebrated the first of our First Holy Communions at the 10 O'clock Mass. It was wonderful to see our children looking so happy and excited on their First Holy Communion Day. I hope and pray that it will be a day filled with happy memories that they will look back on with great joy. I'm sure many of us still remember well the day we made our own First Holy Communion. It was a beautiful family, and parish family, celebration. I'm looking forward to next week's First Communions now!
Here's a photo of this week's happy children. There are more on our parish Facebook page.
And finally, a hymn to Our Lady, and for our children . . .
Our Lady, Queen of the family,
pray for us.
