BIS #2294 FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Geraldine Rodrigues

BORIVLI, FEBRUARY 22, 2011: February 20, 2011, was a special day for twenty five of our young angels who experienced Jesus for the first time in their lives. All that they had studied and practiced with the help of their teachers Mrs. Idalina Samuel, Durran D’mello and Alston D’Silva, really brought about a change and has given a new meaning to the Eucharist in their lives.

The children also made beautiful screen painted images of the Chalice and the Host, as their contribution in decorating the church. Our main celebrant and Parish Priest, Fr. Ronald Menezes gave an inspiring homily on the Bread of Life, where he spoke, on how the Living Bread satisfies our inner hunger, how we break bread and share it in a community and how after partaking of the Eucharist we need to go out into the world and make a difference. Praising Jesus for coming into their heart, the children performed a beautiful action song entitled, “Jesus is wonderful, Jesus is mine”.

Congratulations to all the catechists, for the hard work put in, so that it could be a memorable day for our children.
