It was ds's First Holy Communion on Sunday. Seven others made their First Holy Communion with him but he was the only boy.He was very excited to be receiving Jesus for the first time. No more hands across his chest and only getting a blessing at communion time.He was the last of the 8 to receive and walked up and raised his cupped hands with confidence to receive his Lord.
He had spent the week working on the final touches of his Holy Communion banner.
His sister made and decorated a beautiful cake for him.
The weather was perfect.
He wore on his pocket proudly the crucifix his confirmation sponsor had given him.in his own way he took her with him to Mass.
Grow in the love and grace of God ds!
