Mary Kathleen's First Communion

Mookie received her First Holy Communion on April 13th. This was a day she had been looking forward to for years. I remember when she was just a toddler and she'd smell my breath after communion and ask when she was going to be old enough to get it herself. I am confident that she was prepared and fully understood what she was partaking in. Her school does such a wonderful job with sacramental preparation. One thing that made it special was that it was in the Shrine of St. Philippine Duchesne. She also had a special part in the mass. She and some classmates led the congregation in singing the responsorial psalm, "Taste and See", and you could really hear her singing out. The children each processed in with either materials to dress the altar themselves or with wheat, etc. Another really fun thing was that most of the songs chosen for the mass were songs by artists like Chris Tomlin and are played on our local Christian radio station so our family was very familiar with them and MK had a lot of fun singing them. Here are some pics from the special day. Frances' first mass MK with her 2nd class teachers MK with her best friend, Naomi MK with Fr. Sean Martin and Sr. Maureen Glavin (celebrant and Head of School)
