First Holy Communion
On Sunday, August 8, 16 young children and teens celebrated their First Holy Communion at the Felician Haiti Mission. After two years of faith formation at our mission, the children and teens were ready to receive for the first time the Body and Blood of Jesus. Preparations for the day were many, and it took a village to make it happen.
Two months ago, the measuring and sewing began as Sisters Izzy and Julitta went to the market to buy the materials for the communion dresses and robes. After taking measurements, the sewing began with the help of Junior and Rosemarie who made the crowns. There was the learning and practicing of
dances and, of course, choir rehearsal.We also wanted to be sure everyone had the opportunity to continue the celebration. With the help of Annette, Adeline and Melinda, the sisters made and beautifully decorated 16 cakes.
