Confirmation and First Communion
So there are another ninety-six fully-fitted soldiers of Christ unleashed on the world! The Mass and administration of Confirmation this morning was a beautiful occasion, and it's always wonderful to administer First Holy Communion to the newly-confirmed. Forty-four of the confirmandi are our second graders, and they made their first confessions earlier in the week, all in preparation for this great day. Now it's time to get all the red vestments put away, and lay out everything we need for the Sunday Masses. Several of the first communicants promised they'd hold their heads up and be ready to receive Holy Communion tomorrow -- enough of the "little kids' blessings" for them!
