This Sunday the children of St Joseph's school gathered with their families to receive their First Holy Communion.
From about 2:00pm the children started to arrive to have individual photos taken by our photographer and then take their places at the front of the church ready for the celebration.
The children took an active part in the Mass by proclaiming the readings, leading us in the bidding prayers and by joining in heartily with the singing.
My thanks once again go to our teachers who have worked with me in preparing the children. Also to their families for the way that they have supported the programme throughout the year.
My thanks also go to our parishioners who came to support the children with their prayer. Also thank you to our musicans and altar servers for leadinging us in such a prayerful celebration.
