On Saturday morning March 10, 2018, 29 children in our parish, who are preparing to receive their First Communion, attended our First Communion Workshop.

The children, with the help of their parents, made their pew banners and chalices. Here are photos courtesy of Faith Formation Coordinator Terri Panuccio.
