For the last three weekends, our second grade students have received their First Holy Communion/Eucharist. They have come before God and our community and taken an important and exciting step in their faith formation. They have received Christ’s body and blood present in the consecrated host. The presence of Christ in the Eucharist isn’t just symbolic, it’s real. In receiving First Holy Communion, our children have become intimately united with Jesus Christ. The community of Saint Leo the Great offers praise and good wishes to our First Holy Communicants and hopes that the Lord Jesus will be their source of hope and salvation as they continue to walk in Faith.
May Christ’s life and love fill them today and every time they receive Him in Holy Eucharist. May they always know God’s love for them and be guided by His mercy.
