Second graders at St. Catherine of Siena School (Ft. Thomas, KY). pose in front of the school with the banners they made to take to their First Communion at the end of April. The school posted the following prayer for their families and the parish to say for them:
Lord Jesus Christ, in the Sacrament of the Eucharist You left us the outstanding manifestation of your limitless love for us.
Thank You for giving these children the opportunity to experience this love in receiving the Sacrament for the first time.
May your Eucharist presence keep them ever free from sin, fortified in faith, filled with love for God and neighbor, and fruitful in virtue, and that they may continue to receive You throughout their lives and attain final union with You at death.
