Preparation for the Sacraments
The children preparing for the sacraments of reconciliation and First Holy Communion began their preparation yesterday.
At a packed 11am Mass they received their Missals. We pondered the gospel. Brothers argue about all sorts of things, not least who is the greatest! In Our Lord Jesus Christ we find our true greatness, our greatness is found in Him and in the grace of the sacraments. The beautiful truths of the life of grace will become more deeply rooted in the lives of these children. Please pray for the 36 children in the parish preparing for the sacraments.
After Mass parents, children, catechists and clergy had lunch together. It was a lovely beginning.
