First Communion Received

  Seventy-two children, 28 St. Joseph School students among them, received the sacrament of First Communion at St.Joseph Church on August 14-15. There were 44 Youth Faith Formation communicants from the public schools attending as well. Father Tony Robbins, Pastor, presided at the Friday evening Mass while Associate Pastor Father Chandra Kodavatikanti led the Saturday afternoon service. This Rite is normally conducted in May, but it was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Holy Communion is usually the third of seven sacraments received in the Catholic church, after Baptism and Reconciliation/Confession. Alyssa Chandler is seen in this photo.
