There was excitement in the air when the six children in the First Communion class heard that they would be receiving Jesus for the first time at the end of April. “Radio Caura” went into operation and the parents, family, friends and villagers were eagerly anticipating another celebration at the St Veronica’s chapel – La Plata Village, Caura.
These children were prepared for almost one and a half years and they attended classes without fail. The days preceding the celebration the parents came out and cleaned and beautifully decorated the chapel totally transforming it.
The class comprising three girls and three boys, looked resplendent in their attire on that memorable day as they made their way to the altar to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ for the first time.
First Communion class with parish priest Fr Reginald Hezekiah
Fr Reginald Hezekiah, the parish priest, was the celebrant and in his homily he reminded the children and their parents that it was not only on their First Communion day they should to come to church but that every Sunday was communion day with the Lord with either Holy Mass or Eucharistic service.
There was a simple seedling ceremony during the Mass, as the Caura valley is well known for its agriculture, after which the children lustily sang their First Communion song.
It is hoped that the parents will continue to act responsibly and nurture their children (seedling) and see them deeply rooted in his/her faith.
The St Charles choir was as usual at their best and we thank them for the accompaniment. At the end of the ceremony all were invited to share in a good Caura hospitality as most of the refreshments were prepared by the parents.
