First Holy Communions celebrated in Lowestoft

First Holy Communion was celebrated in three Masses at Our Lady Star of the Sea, Lowestoft, on Saturday September 26, reports Kathy Fallon.

No more than 30 people attended each Mass and the children were not able to participate but they were amazing and patient since they should have made this in June.  They have been doing their lessons online and getting all their liturgy work online too.

We have celebrated (apart) but together, Easter, Pentecost, Reconciliation and now their First Holy Communion.  They have adapted well.  They were truly blessed.

We had three Priests saying a Mass each.  Fr Stephen, Fr Neville and Fr Alvan (pictured above).  Deacon Stephen joined us as well.

Each Mass was live-streamed so friends and family could join in as well as parishioners.

Fr Paul was organising in the background doing a fantastic job. The weather was bad but maybe it was symbolic!  A great day had by all.
