Communion Reflection -- St. Charles Borromeo Parish, Cinnaminson

July 29, 2019 at 12:37 p.m.


I have been preparing second grade students for First Holy Communion for six years and it is one of the most gratifying aspects of my job.  The children enter the year with very little knowledge of what is going to take place and there is truly a transformation over the preparation time.  … We have a wonderful pastor at St. Charles and he makes these sacraments so special to the children and the parents, I feel they come away from them with a better understanding of their faith and a real desire to practice it. Families and visitors to the reception of the sacrament also come away rejuvenated and hopefully more inclined to avail themselves of the sacrament themselves.
