First Communions II

The second of our first Holy Communion Masses was celebrated today at Our Lady of the Rosary. May God bless all our children who have now received our Blessed Lord for the first time. It was good to welcome Fr Kieran from Liverpool who generously travelled down to give Holy Communion to a young relative, Aaron.

Once again, God blessed us with a beautiful day so that the photographs could be taken outside in the sunshine. (There were more girls last week!)





Earlier, we had a TLM Low Mass for the Vigil of Pentecost followed by confessions. Later, there were more confessions and the Saturday evening Mass, followed by the final day of our Pentecost Novena with the singing of "Come Holy Ghost" which, I take it, suffices to gain the plenary indulgence for singing the Veni Creator Spiritus on Pentecost Sunday. In any case, we will be singing the Veni Creator in Latin after the Latin Mass tomorrow.
