AFTER THE COMMUNION CEREMONY
**Encourage your child to wear his or her Communion dress or suit to weekend Mass for as long as he or she wants to! The Parish community loves to see this, and parishioners will often make a positive comment, give encouragement and congratulations, and pray for your child and you. Wearing the communion outfit through May is a beautiful gift for everyone.
**The day after receiving First Holy Communion, your child is eligible to be an Altar Server. Please talk to your child about this ministry, and if he or she is interested in joining, contact Mary. The option to join is always open, even if your child does not want to join right away.
**If you don't want to keep your child's outfit as a keepsake, please consider donating it to our Program. We have some families in need who will benefit from your gift. If you use a suit or dress from our collection, there is no need to return it if you want to keep it as a keepsake. If you choose to donate or return, please clean the garments; we have no washing machine on premises to do that. Thank you!
