First Communions at Our Lady in Stowmarket

Eight girls and boys, who had been preparing since early October last year at the parish of Our Lady in Stowmarket, finally received their First Communion on Sunday June 19, at the 10.15 Mass.

After a photo they gathered in the church hall for breakfast. First, they sang a song entitled My First Communion Day. Later in the proceedings, they cut a beautiful cake, made through the auspices of one of the mothers.

Finally, before the party broke up, the boys and girls received a certificate to remind them of their momentous day.
