God Bless Our First Communicants!
This weekend at our 11a.m. Mass 52 of our parish youngsters will be celebrating their First Holy Communion. We welcome and congratulate them as they receive this sacrament of Christ’s promise to remain among us.
Dear Jesus, through bread and wine at the Last Supper, and by your holy word, you gave the Eucharist to your church. You transformed common food and drink into your Body and Blood, and offered us a share in your life in ways we still cannot fully understand. Grant now that these young people will always treasure the gift they have in you. Give them the grace to be faithful to you and to remain in communion with your church. As they receive their first Communion, the Bread of Life and Cup of Salvation, make them always aware of the hope they have for eternal life in you. Amen.
