First Holy Communion, such an important and beautiful day, the beginning of a child's Eucharistic life. This Sacrament is so spectacular that a child must prepare their entire soul, mind and physical being for it. They will experience the monumental Sacrament of Holy Confession, where their sins are washed away by Christ's Precious Blood, and only then, can they approach the Holy Altar and receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Blessed Lord, a Treasure so beautiful it is hard to verbalise. The young girl's attire will be that of a young Bride of Christ, usually a white dress and matching mantilla; pure, innocent and free from all iniquity.
