During his homily Father Victor told the children to receive then give.
They had received the story of Jesus Christ, His Gospel of Good News and were to pass it on as it had been done for 2,000 years.
Be givers and receivers always, throughout our lives.
This new way of preparation for First Holy Communion was a journey which involved families as well as the children.
The idea of prayer warriors to pray for individual children and their families by name and a specially composed prayer too, included parishioners on the children’s journey.
May every time we receive Holy Communion be as the First…a time of joy, wonder and great gratitude.
