2014 FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Written by Fr Chris Loughran on .

First Holy Communion

Because of the size of our church and because of the number of boys and girls receiving First Holy Communion, an extra Mass was celebrated for this special event. 26 girls and boys accompanied by family and friends and surrounded by a haze of love trouped their way into church at the beginning of Mass and introduced themselves to the congregation. They returned to their parents only to come to the front again at the time of the homily, sat with the priest and teased out the meaning of the 'Good Shepherd' who was spoken of in the Gospel of the Day.
