Message to our Confirmation and First Communion Students

Last weekend should have been the Confirmation Celebration of our children and this weekend their First Communion. Let’s pray as we look forward for the rescheduled dates for these celebrations.

El fin de semana pasado debería haber sido la celebración de Confirmación de nuestros niños, y este fin de semana su Primera Comunión. Oremos mientras esperamos la nueva fecha para estas celebraciones.

 

Message to our 1st Communicants

Peace in Christ,

We wanted to share a video recorded by Bishop Noonan. This message is to young children who were preparing eagerly to receive Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament for the first time. This weekend would have been the long-awaited date for many young people. While it is no substitute for the Bread of Life, I thought you might want to share it with parishioners so that they can hear from our shepherd about his deep desire for their First Holy Communion.
