Our Goddaughter's First Holy Communion Mass

We've had a busy past few days full of fun celebrations! This past weekend was First Communion for our Goddaughter and during this week we also celebrated our oldest daughter turning 14

On Saturday, May 16, 2014, our homeschool group celebrated a First Holy Communion Mass for four children in our homeschool group and one of these special first communicants was our Goddaughter.  My husband and I are blessed to have such a special gal for a Goddaughter, who we have always and will always continue to keep her in prayer.  We were also blessed to celebrate this special day with her family and friends as she continues on her faith journey.

At the beginning of the Mass, the first communicants and their friends processed down the aisle with fresh flowers to place in vases in front of our Blessed Mother and then our Goddaughter placed a beautiful flower crown on Mary's statue.

Here is our Goddaughter receiving the Precious Body and Blood for the first time.
Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, "Take, eat; this is my body."  And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.  

It was such beautiful Mass and day!  Our family was so happy to celebrate with our Goddaughter, family, and friends!  M.R.H., may you always stay close to Jesus and His Church and continue to receive the sacraments with much love, faith, hope, and joy!

Dear Tracy and Anthony,
It is so sweet of you to put MARIA's
First Holy Communion on your blog, so we could be there in spirit, if not in body. The pictures were beautiful and made us feel as if we were there, (which we wish we could have been).

She looks so sweet and we will always pray that she stays close to Jesus as she was on that special day.

Hi Ms. Barbara and Mr. Richard,

Thank you for stopping in to see a few of the pictures Anthony took of Maria's special day! We know you were there in prayers and thoughts, which is especially important! We missed seeing you, but we hope to see you in our neck of the woods again soon! God bless and I can't wait to hear all about your awesome anniversary trip! :)
