Message to First Holy Communion Children''And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
As we come to the end of the month of May, which is dedicated to Mary, Mother of Jesus, we are thinking in a special way of all the children from Clonbonny, Coosan, Cornamaddy, Scoil na gCeithre Máistrí and St. Mary’s schools, who were to receive their First Holy Communion in the months of April, May and June this year. You, your families and your teachers are in our prayers.
We are very glad that you got the chance to celebrate the important sacrament of First Confession just before the schools had to close in March. While it’s still far too early to know when we can come together for your ‘big day’, you can be sure that the day will come when you will receive Jesus in Holy Communion and it will be all the more special for each one of us. In the meantime, keep saying your prayers every day, and one that we can all say together is:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you, blessed are you amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
God bless you all, stay safe and well, and enjoy the good weather – Fr. Declan, Fr. Padraig, Fr. John and Fr. Pierre
