On Sunday, June 27th, we were blessed to celebrate the sacrament of First Holy Communion with 34 of our grade 2 students. The children received Jesus for the first time in the sacrament of Holy Communion surrounded by their families during 2 special afternoon Sunday masses. It was such an exciting time for all of the children and their families, who had waited with great anticipation for the rescheduling of this sacrament. These boys and girls really put forth amazing thought and effort into their online classes and assignments this past year, and it was so beautiful to see all their hard work come to fruition! We also thank their parents, who were a great support to the children with our online learning format. We are so grateful for the many generous volunteers who offered their time and talents with distanced seat assignments, ushering, registering families, decorating, helping with certificates and providing music. We couldn’t have done it without you! This season has been a true reminder for all us that no matter the unexpected ups and downs we may face, Jesus is always waiting for us, ready to be received into our hearts and embraced with our lives. May Jesus continue to fill the hearts and minds of these children with a great love for Him, a desire to grow closer to Him, and a sweet awareness of how deeply they are loved by Him.
