Today was such a special day for my oldest. Today along with many of his classmates, he celebrated his First Holy Communion. Our parish celebrates First Communion during the normal weekend masses, so some of his classmates celebrated last weekend as well. If you’ve been following our blog, you already know that I made his tie from my wedding dress shawl. I documented that process here.
It was a beautiful mass with 19 First Communicants. My oldest helped carry up the gifts, and it was wonderful to see the joy and reverence on his face as he participated in this wonderful gift.
Our priest gave a wonderful homily to the children about how the Eucharist is the greatest gift they will ever receive. We have been so blessed to have two wonderful priests at our parish who have enriched our lives so much.
After Mass, we celebrated with a big family party along with our cousin who received her First Communion today also. What a beautiful day to celebrate this wonderful sacrament with my oldest!
