Our First Communion Mass

We are happy to announce to the children of this year’s First Communion class, and to their parents and friends, that our date for First Communion has been set!  Our celebration will take place on Sunday, October 18th at a special Mass celebrated at 1:00 pm. To ensure physical distancing requirements, the children are asked to sit together with their own families at Mass instead of as a class and, to receive Communion with their families instead of as a group. Beautiful individual gifts, hand-made by Pam Brusadin and Theresa Matijasic will be distributed to them on their special day and the crowning of the statue of Mary at the beginning of the ceremony will also take place as usual. However, due to the pandemic precautions, First Confessions have been postponed to a later date.
