They've got that JOY down in their hearts!

First Communion celebrations are always joyful occasions!  We've had 6 of 7 celebrations for 91 children.  Here are a few photos from this season in my parish.

  1. These are terrific photos- they really do convey such joy and energy and brighten the heart. What a great way to share the joy brought to these youngsters and your community and all of us through the immense gift of their first Eucharist.

    Wow, these are all great but the one with you and the kinds and the guitar is priceless. What a beautiful memory you created for those children and their parents. They are blessed to have you as pastor.
