first communion - 2006  

These are the children in Second Class. They have just received their First Holy Communion. It was a day of great joy and celebration for the children , their families and friends.

This year there were two Communion Dates, one for each class. Fr. Paddy Keating said both Masses.  


Everybody worked hard to prepare for the special day. Prayers were learned and hymns were practiced each day since Easter. Many boys and girls had specific duties on the morning of their communion.


 The parents helped the children with prayers, readings and outfits were purchased during the months beforehand.


 Fr. Keating was the celebrant in Ovens Parish Church. The classes participated wonderfully in the ceremonies.
