A First Holy Communion

Today, Mr. Thomas received Holy Communion for the very first time!  I think his shy little self was a little nervous, but he’s happy, of course.  Father Christian is a visiting priest just for today.  He’s a Benedictine monk out of St. Meinrad’s Archabbey, and so he doesn’t do a whole lot of First Communions.  In fact, he’s only done three others, so he was just as honored to get to be a part of this day as we were.  We are now baking cakes, because we do everything at the last minute!  Fortunately, we aren’t having company, so no one else will ever know.

  1. Pretty altar! Congratulations to Tommy!

    1. Isn’t it gorgeous? There’s another small church here with the same style of altars… There are three! I didn’t photograph them, but there are two side altars, smaller, but equally ornate.
