First Holy Communion

Yesterday I celebrated the first of three First Holy Communion Masses in the parish. I hope everyone involved found it as joyful an occasion as I did. This is certainly one of the joys of being a parish priest. Being able to see the children develop in their understanding of their faith over the course of the preparation programme; to help them with their First Confessions and to see the culmination of all this and their obvious delight on the day they receive Our Blessed Lord for the first time.
