A sacrament is a sacred and visible sign that is instituted by Jesus to give us ‘grace’, an undeserved gift from God. Thirty-two children, within our Parish Community, are currently excited and eagerly anticipating receiving the Sacrament of First Eucharist during one of three Masses this coming week. One of the ‘Sacraments of Initiation’ which began with their Baptism; they will then be able to fully participate in the Eucharist which is the heart of who we are as Catholics. This is a celebration for the whole Parish Community, so please keep the children and families in your prayers. Prayer is what binds us as a family close to Jesus and to each other.
