Mangalore: It was an auspicious day for the lovely 30 angels of Sacred Heart Parish Madanthyar who decked themselves with white gowns and dress, with Angelic looks and pure heart to receive the King of Kings in their heart for the first time.
The celebration of the First Holy communion was hosted at the parish hall. Fr. Basil Vas was the main celebrant of the Holy Eucharist, concelebrated by Fr Alwyn Sequeira OCD who preached the Word of God and many other priests.
Solemn felicitation program was held immediately after the mass. The event was witnessed by the faithful of the parish and relatives of Holy Communicants. It was a beautiful event to be remembered by all who were present.
Eucharist is a source and summit of our Christian life. First Holy Communion is a wonderful moment in a child’s life and represents a sign of growth in the knowledge and love of God for each and every child. Parents who bring their child or children for first honey communion are fulfilling the vow they made publicly at their child’s baptism.
