Father Adrian Wiltshire celebrated Mass yesterday for a large number of first Communicants at Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church in Cwmbran. Father Wiltshire explained to the boys and girls that this was the most important Communion for the Children but that every Communion they made from now on would be an important Communion, coming into the presence of Christ. He gave a wonderful homily onthe importance of Faithfulness in the world today. Afterwards the children went to celebrations with their families as the church congregation clapped and applauded as they received their missals and their certificates. It was a very happy occasion indeed and sadly , as there was not enough room in Church, which was filled to the rafters, some had to watch from outside-but all got to communicate.
Wonderful occasion and the children will lead the Church in the procession at Llantarnam Abbey in June.
