First Holy Communion – May 11, 2013

Saturday, May 11, 2013 was a very special day for the children in 3rd Grade at St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy, as well as the children enrolled in the St. Stanislaus Kostka CCD Program. All 30 children anxiously arrived to our church on time. This would be their first time to receive Jesus in Holy Communion. The church was beautifully decorated with white flowers at the altar and white bows lining the pews for where the children would sit. The names of all children were posted on the special banners which were placed on both sides of the sanctuary. Fr. Marek Sobczak CM was the celebrant for the Mass and Fr. Joseph Szpilski was the concelebrant. The children eagerly listened to Fr. Marek, responded loudly, and behaved reverently during the entire Mass. Just before the children received their First Holy Communion, they sang, “Into My Heart”. Just after receiving Holy Communion the children sang, “At the Table of Jesus”.  Just before the Mass ended children expressed their gratefulness to the priests, to Sister Collette, to Mrs. Christina Cieloszczyk, the Principal of the Academy, to Mrs. Kimberly Petruzzo, their 3rd grade teacher. First Holy Communion Day was truly a wonderful day for these children. May they continue to stay close to Jesus now and forever.

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Last two Saturdays – May 8th and May 15th – were the days of celebration in our parish. 87 children, 3rd grade students from our school and our parish CCD program, received Jesus Christ,  the Body and Blood of the Lord, in Holy Communion for the first time in their lives. We congratulate them and we offer our prayers for their intentions. First Communion is considered one of the holiest and most important celebrations in a Roman Catholic’s life.  In order for anyone to receive communion, that person must be without sin and in a state of grace. Our children made their first confession, or the Sacrament of Penance, a few weeks before receiving their First Communion. Continue reading FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
