This weekend, we bring to mind all the boys and girls who were to make their First Holy Communion in our parishes.
Just when they looked forward to going to Mass and walking up the Church aisle like everyone else to receive the body of Christ, the Church doors had to be closed to protect us from Covid 19.
We remind them that while they are waiting on their Holy Communion, that every time we receive kindness and love from our parents, brother or sister, we receive Jesus Christ in our hearts.
In the same way, every time we show understanding, patience and forgiveness to them, we give them a part of Jesus Christ from our hearts.
We remember and pray for you all this weekend and we look forward to celebrating the occasion with you in the future.
