With a little over a month left before First Communions, preparations for the big day are well under way. Starting the weekend after Easter, the children are now attending Holy Mass every week in order to incorporate everything they are learning in their lessons and weekday preparations. His Excellency, Mar Sarhad Y. Jammo said Mass for the children of St. Peter Cathedral on Friday, April 25, and Fr. Peter Lawrence said Mass for the communicants of St. Michael Church on Saturday, April 26. As the date of First Communion draws near, the children will be going through preparations for their first confessions as well as how to sing and participate in the Mass.
