Celebration of the Sacrmanets of First Holy Communion and Confirmation

05-19-2019Fr. John C. Granato

My Dear Friends,

We recently had our First Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation for our faith formation students. On Sunday, May 5th, eight young boys received their first Holy Communion. It 's always a special time for a parish community as well as for the families. We rejoice when our young people begin to receive the Eucharist at Mass. Every time we receive our Lord in the Eucharist, whether for the first time or for the 51st time for the one thousandth time, we grow closer to our Lord as he calls us and nourishes us so that we may receive countless graces and blessings. St. Augustine, the bishop of Hippo, once said we cannot receive our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament until we first adore the Lord on the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Adoration is an opportunity for us to make an act of faith about Jesus really and truly present in the Eucharist as we sit or kneel in his presence on the altar. A parish that offers and promotes Eucharistic Adoration will also receive countless graces and blessings.
