First Holy Communion for 58

fhcgroupmain

After Sunset Mass at St Ignatius Church (SIC) on 20 October, nine-year-old Ava Marie Maran Low said she felt happy. Why? Because I have received Jesus. This could very well be the same response of 57 other children from SIC's Standard 3 First Holy Communion Class of 2018 who received Christ the Bread of Life for the first time. SIC Parish Priest Fr Andrew Wong CDD was the main celebrant at the Eucharistic celebration with Fr Paulino Miranda as concelebrant. Fr Andrew thanked all who helped prepare the boys and girls to receive their first holy communion. He also encouraged parents to live and practise their faith as well as continue to train their children in the Christian faith and its practice.

Incorporated into the One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic Church through Baptism while infants, receiving Christ in the Eucharist is the third Sacrament received by the children. Apart from bread and wine, the children offered up their First Holy Communion certificates – a symbol of remembrance of the first time they become one in the Body of Christ – and Camp Crafts Prayer Cards during the Offertory Procession. The children also sang a thanksgiving song titled Every Move I Make followed with a pledge by their parents. Each child happily took turns to be photographed with Frs Andrew and Paulino after Mass.

Fifteen children received their First Holy Communion at the St Ignatius Church (SIC) 6 pm Mass on Sunday 30 September 2018. Eleven children and an infant who is a sibling of one of the children were baptised by Fr Alberto Irenus SJ at a ceremony held before Mass with godparents, family members and friends in attendance. These are children of parent/s baptised as adults who want to join the Catholic Church or children of Catholic parents who have not had the opportunity to attend Sunday school (e.g. those who accompanied parents posted overseas). Each year, SIC Sunday school's special catechism programme help prepare such children who are within the Standard 3 to Form Four age group for the Sacraments of Baptism and First Holy Communion.

On Saturday 22 September, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) Class of 2018-19 participated in a bonding event in Villamaria Good Shepherd Kindergarten & Nursery, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur. The programme started at 8.30 am with an opening prayer. The lively praise and worship session, warmed up the group. They enjoyed a series of team building games, which enriched them with the acknowledgement of God’s creation, fellowship building and recognition of Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness through the enactment of a few parables.

Besides, there was a group of past-journey RCIA mates who came along to help promote bottled food and beverage products homemade by the Good Shephard sisters. There is truly a spirit of serving and sharing among all participants. The bonding event ended around 3.30 pm, with great joy and laughter.
