When my oldest daughter made her First Communion we wanted to do something special for the priest, who was a close family friend. We decided to make a banner. Since then, each First Communicant has made a small felt banner in honor of their special day, to present to the priest giving the First Communion. It has been a nice tradition and each child looks forward to designing and creating their banner. Since we know we are giving it away, we always take a picture of our First Communicant with their artistic creation.
Here they are, all six of them!
Audrey, our last First Communicant, received her First Holy Communion on Sunday, January 18, 2009. Congratulations, Aud!
