We are so blessed that our first child will be receiving his First Holy Communion next month. We received permission from our pastor for Brendan to receive for the first time at my parents' wedding vows renewal Mass on June 26th. It promises to be a joyous day of grace! At the moment, we're trying to make the most of our final weeks of preparation. We are using the New St. Joseph First Communion Catechism as our base.
here. If time permits, I may draw on some of the suggestions. One thing we will be doing for certain is a special notebook similar to this. I know the hands-on aspect will really cement the lessons we have been discussing so far.
Please pray for Brendan as he prepares to receive the sacraments of Penance (Reconciliation) and Holy Communion for the first time!
