First Holy Communion - A Day We All Remember

Think back to your First Holy Communion Day ...... I am sure you clearly remember the day!

So much goes into this day that keeps that day very memorable for all of us who received this beautiful Sacrament! We remember the practices in church before the big day, the haircut, perms, shopping for a dress, a veil, white shoes and for the boys a haircut and the first suit!

Our parents, grandparents, godparents, our teacher and our principal are so proud of us! A day we all remember forever.

All Saints Catholic School of Our Lady of the Mountains Parish celebrated the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday, April 25.

After the group picture was taken before Mass students waited anxiously for the Mass to begin and for all their invited guests to come to church.

Finally the church bells rang out 10:00am and it was time to process into church as they practiced many times -slow, hands folded like "church steeples" and leave a space in between the person in front of you-better for pictures.

After the students did the readings at Mass it was time for the Offertory Procession and to bring up the bread and wine that will soon be changed into the Body and Blood of Christ.

The beautiful rosaries, Bibles and crosses given as First Communion gifts are blessed. 

First Holy Communion Certificates are presented to each First Communicant 

Pictures and pictures were taken with the happy and proud children - a day they will always remember.
