Dear Parents and Guardians,
Throughout the month of May, the Parish of Saint Leo the Great will celebrate the Sacraments of First Holy Communion/Eucharist and Confirmation.
Our First Communicants will come before God and our community and take an important and exciting step in their faith formation. They will receive Christ’s body and blood present in the consecrated host. It is important for all of us to remember that for Catholics, the Eucharist in not just symbolic, it is real. In receiving First Holy Communion, our children become intimately united with Jesus Christ.
Our Confirmandi will receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit which will enable them to develop an increased ability to practice the Faith and to witness Christ in every aspect of their lives. They too will develop a more intimate relationship with Christ and a closer bond with the Church.
The community of Saint Leo the Great offers praise and good wishes to our First Communicants and our Confirmandi. We hope that the Lord will always be their source of hope and salvation as they continue to walk in Faith.
May they always know God’s love for them and be guided by His mercy.
