Retreat in preparation for First Holy Communion

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION is the third of the seven sacraments received and is an important rite of passage in a young Catholic’s life. 112 candidates ranging from 10 to 15 years, participated in the two days retreat at Pace Bene, Purak, Papar, which is situated about 42 km from Sacred Heart Cathedral, on 20-21 August 2018. The main aim of this retreat is to prepare the candidates on the importance of receiving the Eucharist and also understanding the sacrament of penance or confession. Apart from knowing the proceedings of the Holy Mass, candidates also learnt how to recognise and use the Catholic Bible. The programme was organised by Sunday School Faith Formation English language class, Anne Charles with Neil Mah as the retreat master. The candidates are to receive their First Holy Communion on Oct 20, 2018. – Susan Graham
