First Communion Day!

Sunday was Catherine's big day!  We had been preparing all year and now she was ready! 

All ready to go at the church.  She wore my wedding veil.

Our family.

Catherine with her friend, Chiara.  It was neat they could make their First Communion together.

My brother, Fr. Brian, was able to come and concelebrate the Mass.  He also got to give Catherine her First Communion, which was awesome!

When we got to the "holding area," Catherine just walked up to some girls she didn't know and started talking to them.  I wondered how she'd do since she only knew one other girl, but not to worry!  She was fine.  There were 78 kids making their First Communion!

After the Mass, with Anthony.

We couldn't take pictures during the Mass, but it was wonderful.  Dan and I walked up to be with Catherine as she received Jesus for the first time.  Such a special moment that I will never forget.

Catherine and her godparents, my sister Beth and Dan's brother Al.

She was so happy.

I was so glad they bloomed in time.
