First Communion Banner

Originally uploaded by Chez VH.

Bernie was very involved and excited about the whole process even though I did the cutting and gluing (and John did the sewing!). She drew three or four possible designs, consulted with everyone on the possibilities and gave careful consideration to the placement of everything - especially the flowers.

I love seeing all the banners in the vestibule of Church during Easter Season (a different batch each week).

And while we're on the subject of First Communion, please remember in your prayers Bernie and all who are receiving their First Communion this weekend.

Our First Communion Mass is at 2 p.m. today (Sunday). Every single pew has been reserved for a first communicant and his/her family. It's a big group, Alicia!

Bernie will be lifted up in prayer during the Mass along with Dawn's little boy, CJ. Please tell Bernie that her banner is beautiful! Stephen made one, too, but got a little more...creative with his materials than you did. When he asked to bring out the glitter, I put my foot down! :)

Blessings to you all on this happy Fifth Sunday of Easter!
