The First Holy Communion for this year was one of a kind. Historically, we have had only Grade 3 boys receiving their 1st Holy Communion because this is when it is considered they have reached the age of reason.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we had grade 2 and 3 share this very important occasion in our school. The Grade 3 boys were supposed to have had it last year, but because there was no going to school, they had to wait for this year. This year the Grade 2 boys attained the age of reason. This is why we had the two classes celebrate this occasion at ago.
In the past we had a small party at school involving the cutting of a cake and all the involved parties having snacks and drinks in the school courtyard. This year people dispersed to their homes immediately after the Holy Mass. Parents and the boys generally enjoyed the occasion despite the fact that there wasn’t eating and crowds as has been the case in the past.
