The first communion, originally scheduled for May, had to be postponed due to the corona.
Thankfully, we were able to celebrate this festivity on October 2nd in the Piarist Church in Krems.
After lots of preparation, along with the help of Father Patrick, 13 children from the third grade took part in their first Holy Communion.
The weather was fine as the children in their white robes entered the church.
In order to comply with all the Corona-Rules, each child could only invite a limited number of guests.
Nevertheless, the setting was particularly beautiful and solemn.
The children had rehearsed suitable songs, intercessions and texts to perform to their guests in line with the theme of this years’ celebration: “Jesus, tell us about God”.
Father Patrick, class teacher Monika, religion teacher Isabel, native speaker Kate, parents, school management and management – all contributed to make this an unforgettable day for the children.
A big thank to everyone for such a great day!
