First Communicants Bread Ceremony - January 25-26
Congratulations to our parish 2nd graders who have recently received the Lord's mercy and forgiveness in the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time..
These children will be introduced to the parish community in the Blessing of First Communicants (also known as the Bread Ceremony) during the 5 pm, 9 am and 11 am Masses on the weekend of January 25-26. During these Masses, the children will receive a blessing as a formal beginning to their preparation for the Sacrament.
The children will bring a loaf of bread to be blessed and given to people in the assembly, who then become the children's prayer partners. As the children learn what it means to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharist, they will be supported by the prayers, good example, and written messages of encouragement from their prayer partners. Please graciously and prayerful accept this special gift if you are chosen by one of the children.
