First Communion Sunday

On top of being Mother's Day, we also celebrated with about 25 second graders as they made their First Communion today. One of the things Father Jim hoped, was that these children would remember this day for the rest of their lives.

I remember my first communion in 1974 (see picture), albeit vague memories. It took place at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church on Bridgetown in Cincinnati, OH.

Does anyone remember their First Communion??

A prayer for the little ones:

Dear Jesus,
Bless these little children, who come to You today. Live in their hearts and touch their hearts in Your kind, loving way. Watch over and protect them, Lord, wherever they may go, for they have brought a world of joy to those who love them so. Amen.
