Oh, Dearest Mother, Sweetest Virgin of Altagracia, our Patroness. You are our Advocate and to you we recommend our needs. You are our Teacher and like disciples we come to learn from the example of your holy life. You are our Mother, and like children, we come to offer you all of the love of our hearts. Receive, dearest Mother, our offerings and listen attentively to our supplications. Amen.

It's First Holy Communion time of year, again!

If your child (or other child you know) is making their First Holy Communion this spring......if you want to post their name, the date and maybe the state you live in (if you feel comfortable doing that).....in this thread, and we'll pray for your child! We did this in 2009, 2008 and 2007 and the fruits have been tremendous! Please join us!

Our second daughter, Erika will be making her First Communion on May 2, in Washington.

Blessed Imelda, you showed us by the miracle of your First Communion how much Jesus loves us, and your short life was an example of how we should love Him. Look down on these children from heaven and pray that they will love Christ as joyfully as you! Amen.

My oldest daughter Bailey will be receiving her FHE sometime in June. The date may be determined based on when I go into labor.

My son Daniel will receive his First Holy Communion on April 24th. Here in our diocese in Michigan the children also receive their Confirmation this year. The Bishop will do that on April 13th. He is so excited for both of these sacraments!

Our dd, E, will be receiving in the summer...probably July. She really wants her godparents there and they are hoping to be traveling back and forth to Russia from May to ??? bringing us some new cousins! so our FHC date is rather fluid at this point.

We will keep all the other first communicants in our prayers too.
