First Holy Communion
Well, the day went well. That's me in the top hat. Paulinus Minor Major did us proud - indeed all the children behaved impeccably, although I gather this isn't always the case.
Monsignor gave a gentle reminder that this was the childrens' First Holy Communion, rather than their last and a lovely sermon about the love of Jesus Christ made manifest in the Eucharist that made it clear that frequent communion was a habit the children should get into.
Thankfully the parents behaved reasonably well, too, though I did overhear one lady say "We were lucky to get the bouncy castle for this weekend!"
I gather things are worse in Ireland.
