Fifth Sunday after Easter 2018 – First Communion Sunday
The Church on this last Sunday after Easter recalls the great joy of the Resurrection. The Epistle from St. James exhorts us to put the Faith into action and not be idle hearers of the word. In the Gospel Our Lord instructs His apostles to pray to the Father in His Name. The First Communicants for today were given their final preparations before receiving Our Lord. They also learned about the Scapular and Miraculous Medal which they will receive after Mass.
