Last Sunday, we were invited to join our friend's daughter's Holy Communion mass. It was a nice ceremony with 19 children participating in the third of the seven Catholic sacraments. Mass was especially nice, since the edges of the aisles were decorated with the names of the children that were celebrating their First Communion. Also, to watch the young girls and boys walk down towards the altar was incredibly sentimental. Also, our friend's daughter was wearing her mother's own First Communion gown. Too bad the boys were limited to white dress shirts and ties! The girls are so much lovelier in their pretty dresses and veils.
Congratulations to the children who received their first holy communion on Sunday!
