On the great feast of Corpus Christi, children from our parish received Jesus in Holy Communion for the first time.
This joyful and memorable occasion took place on the day when the Church celebrates the feast of the Lord's Body and Blood. The children's faith and devotion were a reminder to all of us that this gift - Jesus' gift of Himself - is the most precious of all.
The First Communion Mass was part of a weekend of events to mark the feast. On Friday we had our parish Blessed Sacrament procession, with all the children of St Clare's and some of the pupils of Corpus Christi High School, and today some of our parishioners took part in the deanery procession on the streets around St Walburge's church.
