First Holy Communion

May 4, 2024

Thirty-two children from our Parish were admitted to the Eucharistic table at a Holy Mass on Saturday, May 4th at 1:00PM. They gained full communion with the Lord in sacramental form, after having lived in communion with him through listening to his Word in our Parish community for several years.

Holy Communion separates us from sin. The body of Christ we receive in Holy Communion is “given up for us,” and the blood we drink “shed for the many for the forgiveness of sins.” For this reason the Eucharist cannot unite us to Christ without at the same time cleansing us from past sins and preserving us from future sins (CCC 1393).

For as often as we eat this bread and drink the cup, we proclaim the death of the Lord. If we proclaim the Lord’s death, we proclaim the forgiveness of sins. If, as often as his blood is poured for the forgiveness of sins, I should always receive it, so that it may always forgive my sins. Because I always sin, I should always have a remedy.

St. Ambrose

Please, join in prayer for all those who received the sacrament of the Eucharistic that they continuously grow in closeness to God and to their neighbor.
