Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist 2019

Despite the cold weather on Sunday 23 June, we had a wonderful day in Yass and Gunning celebrating with 34 young people in our parish who received the Eucharist for the first time. Thank you to everyone who helped make this year's celebration of First Communion such a special occasion. I'm grateful to the parents, Fr Mick and the sacramental team – John Duncan, Kassie Miller, Linda Swadling and Mandy Leahy, who supported our young parishioners in their preparation; Peter Cleary and his helpers for the church decorations and behind the scenes organising; Charlotte and Molly McPherson for altar serving; Annabelle O'Connell, Kassie, Linda, and Mandy for their wonderful work on the stoles; Annabelle, the choir, and musicians, Linda and Rory for the beautiful singing; Peter Gibbs for his photography; Kassie and Trish Gibbs for making and decorating the Eucharist cake; Mt Carmel School and those who assisted with the cuppa after the ceremony, many thanks.
