Pictured here are many of the children whose First Communions were celebrated on May 14, May 20, and May 21.
The Church of St Matthew celebrated 36 First Communions this spring. Nineteen of the students attend Community of Saints Regional Catholic School, and 17 of the students attend area public elementary and middle schools and were prepared through the St Matthew Faith Formation program. Thank you to First Communion teachers and helpers: Valerie Gerlich, Autumn Koch, Janelle Rohr, Mary Bejblik, Myrna Beltran, Kathleen Thompson, and Julius Valentin. Thank you to Community of Saints teachers and staff also.
Registration for First Communion in May 2024 will open for public school students in August at the Faith and Learning page of the St Matthew website. Registration for Community of Saints students will also open in August at parent paperwork night at the school, as well as on back-to-school night.
