Many thanks to all who were involved in any way in the celebration of First Communion for the 20 children last Sunday whether it was preparing the Church, the liturgy, the hall after Mass. It was a lovely celebration in which the children were a credit to their families and to themselves as they led us in prayer.
With every best wish and Blessing
To you, your families
and those who are dear to you,
