2013 Holy Communions photos

We present a selection of photos taken at the Thanksgiving Procession & Mass on the parish feastday, 1 May, commemorating our patron, St Joseph. The children who had made their First Holy Communion a few days before were the centre-piece of our celebration and they participated actively in both Procession and Mass.

Well done to all 26 children who received their First Holy Communion in 2013.

Thanks to their parents and teachers who helped prepare them for their special day.

May all of us be ever faithful to following Jesus and making His love present in the world.
