Special Mass of First Holy Communion

After a lengthy postponement due to the Covid-19 Pandemic precautions, fifteen children were able to celebrate their First Holy Communion at a beautiful celebration just for them.  We thank their parents and teachers for preparing them for their special day and for all who made the celebration such a joyful event for everyone.
We extend a particular thank-you  to Sara Lacaria for crowning the statue of the Virgin Mary, to the children who brought flowers and placed them before the altar, to Laurie Clara and Yvonne Harris for providing the music and song, and to Linda West, Karilyn Fedyk and Gaetan Joubert for serving at the Mass.    Finally, we thank their teachers, Pam Brusadin, Theresa Matijacik, Mara Hockenhull and Joleene Kemp.  The beautiful gifts that were presented to the children were made with loving care by Theresa Matijacik and Pam Brusadin and all these photos were taken by Juliano Brusadin.   The day was also special for Deacon John and Susan Myers, whose granddaughter, Kamryn was among the First Communicants.   Congratulations and thanks to all.
