first communion - 2002  

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.

+

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 class participated wonderfully in the ceremony and it was a day which will be forever etched in their memories.

 Afterwards, families and friends congregated in the school for tea and refreshments, which were provided by the Parents Association. We are extremely grateful for their involvement each year.
