First Holy Communion , November-2011

"Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them" (John 6:56).

It was the day of great joy and celebration to seven children of our parish (Ashlyn Anderson, Sherin Marian Lobo, Sonal Pereira, Anisha Christina C., Monisha Christina C., Nitya Valentina and Antony Alwyn C.) . After a long preparation they were eagerly waiting and longing for the Lord Jesus to enter into their lives. The great moment of First Holy Communion took place during the Solemn Eucharistic Celebration on the Feast Day of Christ the King, which presided over by Fr. Patrick Pinto (Diocesan Finance Administrator) and concelebrated by Fr. John Pinto (Parish Priest) and Fr. Roshan D' Souza (Assistant Parish Priest). The Presider himself preached a meaningful and inpiring homily explaining in it the historical development of the celebration of the feast of Christ the King and also highlighted the importance of Holy Communion in the christian life. All the liturgical readings were proclaimed and prayers were read by the children. Hence during this solemn and meaningful Eucharistic Celebration the children ate the flesh and drank the blood of Jesus and for the first time abided with Jesus the Living Bread of Life.
