St. Marys of the Knobs First Communion
Apr 23, 2018
This weekend we celebrated the First Holy Communion for 35 children!
A child's first communion is often a cause for celebration, but to many Catholics, the event has a deeper meaning.
They believe that the event means that a child has studied and understood, to the best of his or her ability, what Catholics call the mystery of transubstantiation — the changing of the substance of ordinary bread and wine into the substance of Jesus Christ's body and blood, according to Catholic beliefs. Congratulations.
