Our future First Communicants were invited to do a special project! They were each sent a cross and asked to decorate it with supplies they had around the house. They were asked to put it somewhere special as they prayed as a family and completed their First Eucharist workbook. Each was asked to send back / email a picture of their cross. As you can see in the collage---aren’t they all beautiful!!!!
We put each child’s name in a hat. It is custom that Michele Porcino and Dennis DellaTerza pick names out of a hat to determine who is bringing up the gifts at the First Communion Masses. We asked them to come back on July 11 before the 5PM Mass. This time they picked out 4 names of the 30 kids that submitted a cross picture! Each family would win a free pizza kit!
The following families won:
Silba - Slocum - Cifelli - Greczek
Remember we are thinking of all of you. Keep Jesus in your hearts and soon, real soon, you’ll receive Him in celebration of your First Communion!
