1st Holy Communion
First Communion Day
First Communion day is one of the most important religious occasions in the lives of Christian children. Receiving and believing in the Eucharist one of the most sacred of Catholic rituals. It is a joy to welcome children to the table of Our Lord, Jesus just as He welcomed His twelve apostles.
The Role of Family and Friends
Celebrating First Communion day with family and friends is not the end of this wonderful sacrament. Being an example to the children who received First Communion is an ongoing vocation for all family and friends. It is wonderful to give the children First Communion presents on their special day but also pray that they will grow in the faith of Jesus throughout their lives.
