A Message from Maria and Adrian who are the First Communion Catechists at 'Our Lady and the English Martyrs' Church in Burnham on Sea.
I want to say on behalf of Adrian and myself that we felt honoured to prepare all the children including pupils from St Joseph’s, Alex, Isla, Kuba, Millie and Olympia on their journey to make their First Holy Communion.
To see them blossom from their first lesson where they were unsure and quiet to mixing so well with the other four candidates from other Schools.
They are such a credit to their parents and school and the boys looked so smart and the girls were beautiful.
"I felt happy because I got to make new friends as part of my preparation and I my Holy Communion was very special to me" (Olympia)
"I found it very exciting because we got to meet other people and it is something we will remember for the rest of our lives" (Millie)
"My whole weekend was special because I got to take my First Holy Communion and play in a football tournament" (Alex)
"I felt really proud because I have taken my First Holy Communion and been able to receive the bread and make me feel properly part of God's family" (Isla)
