Event - Y3McT First Holy Communion

12 May 2012

On Saturday 12th May 2012 the children in Year 3McT celebrated their First Holy Communion.

The sun shone down on all the children as they arrived at the Church ready to receive the Sacrament. All of the children were very excited and slightly nervous!

The service began with a beautiful solo from Mia and the children processed onto the altar to join her for the first song.

The children sang beautifully throughout the service and the readers read clearly. They were an absolute credit to themselves, their families and the Abbey School.

After the service, the children left the Church to the sound of the Church bells. The children returned to school for a Communion Breakfast. They tried hard to make sure that they didn't get any chocolate or jam on their uniform and dresses. A whole class photograph was taken followed by individual photographs.

A great day was had by all and Year 3McT would like to thank everyone involved in making their day very special. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.
