First Eucharist Celebrations

12 September 2014 | General Interest

On August 31 we concluded our First Eucharist celebrations for 2014. These celebrations are a very special time for both the school and parish of St Damian’s. Our students looked very proud as they came to the Table of the Lord, for the first time and were strengthened by the Body of Christ. Our congratulations are extended to all children who were a part of these celebrations.

At this time each year we are all given the time to reflect on the significance of the Eucharist which is central to our faith. The Eucharist strengthens us as we live a true Christian life.

We are most appreciative of the support given to the students by their families, friends and parishioners. We especially acknowledge once again the guidance, support and warmth of Father Vincent.  Father Vincent ensured that every child was given a sense of importance at the celebration and during the preparations. It was lovely to have Dario Juric our visiting seminarian involved in the Masses. We also acknowledge Sister Ignacia our Parish Pastoral Associate and Lina Parisot our Parish Secretary for their support.

We express our gratitude to Aoife McCarthy our Religious Education Leader and to our Year Four teachers. We also thank the Couples for Christ Choir and the St Damian’s Choir and all staff who supported these celebrations.
