First Holy Communion is a wonderful day in the life of a family. Each family gathers around their child, and acknowledges that they have reached a new stage on the journey of faith. The excitement of dressing up in a special way, having a party with the wider family and friends and of course the “communion money” does not cover up the spiritual specialness of the day. This is the time, when you and your family are eager to nourish your child on the journey of life. The sacrament of the Eucharist is a moment to say thanks and to seek to be nourished once more with the presence of Jesus.
