Receiving Holy Communion for the First Time

Published on

Our prayerful best wishes to the 75 children who receive the Eucharist for the first time this weekend. Thank you to their parents, families and teachers in school for helping the girls and boys prepare for this special celebration.


Children’s Prayer after Communion

Lord Jesus, I love and adore you.

You’re a special friend to me.

Welcome, Lord Jesus, O welcome.

Thank you for coming to me.

Thank you, Lord Jesus, O thank you

for giving yourself to me.

Make me strong to show your love wherever I may be.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay

close by me forever and love me, I pray.

Bless all of us children in your loving care

and bring us to heaven to live with you there.

I’m ready now, Lord Jesus, to show how much I care.

I’m ready now to give your love at home and everywhere
