Holy Child Celebrates the Class of 2026 First Holy Communion

Congratulations to the Class of 2026 on receiving First Holy Communion on Monday, July 13, 2020. First Holy Communion was celebrated during a Mass held at Saint Thomas of Villanova Rosemont Chapel, presided over by Reverend Robert Murray, O.S.A.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony, traditionally held in the spring, was postponed until the summertime. The teachers prepared the students to receive First Holy Communion through virtual practices. The students performed their duties flawlessly, leading those present in song, readings, and prayer, without having any in-person rehearsals.

This event marked the second of two sacramental milestones for the Class of 2026's second grade year, receiving the Sacrament of First Reconciliation in December.
