First Communion Pics

We were blessed this morning to welcome five of our children to the holy altar to receive the very Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Supper for the first time via the Rite of First Communion Prior to Confirmation.

Heavenly Father, whose Son Jesus Christ loved the young and called them to Himself, we ask You to bless Hannah, Noah, Zane, Jack, and Aaron. Strengthen them in the faith through the Sacrament of Christ's body and blood, so that they may grow spiritually and bring forth the fruits of faith in a life of love toward others to the praise and honor of Your holy name; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
