Danniel's First Holy Communion

Dec 13, 2011

My son, Danniel received his First Holy Communion last December 7. He is currently in Grade 3 and his school makes it a priority that all grade 3 students will receive the sacrament for the first time. It took them almost a month of preparation, not just of the flow of the mass and their participation, but of their own selves as well. They had their first confession as well. The parents were also given a retreat by a priest to help prepare their kids for this momentous occasion.
The First Communion, or First Holy Communion, is a Catholic Church ceremony. It is the colloquial name for a person's first reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Catholics believe this event to be very important, as the Eucharist is one of the central focuses of the Catholic Church.
Here is looking so solemn after the event. The following day, he received what he called his second communion during the mass for the Immaculate Conception and then his third last Sunday. Too cute that he was counting :)

    Congratulations to your son! I am very sure he enjoyed the ceremony for his first communion. Like you my little boy was so excited when he had his first communion. To tell you honestly, he even told me to buy new long sleeves, and new communion shoes! Oh my, even I am on a tight budget, I bought him what he desires to have in his first communion, just to make him happy.. :)
