Conner's First Communion

 Last Sunday, our nephew, Conner received his First Holy Communion during Mass at St. Andrew's Catholic Church in Bloomfield.

 Conner's class was made up of 12 second and third graders in the parish.

 We were very proud of Conner.  He did a great job processing in, holding his lit candle, renewing his baptismal vows and receiving his first communion.  Keith and I had to stand up at the end and receive a blessing from Father for all of the godparents present for the twelve first communicants.

 After Mass, a dinner was held in the church basement in Conner's honor.  Many photos were taken.  We ate a delicious ham dinner followed by cupcakes for dessert.  Do not ask our children how many cupcakes they ate that afternoon?  I think Justin had three cupcakes himself and that is not counting how many his sisters ate.

  1. It looks like Conner had a great day! We were bummed we couldn't be there!

    P.S. Kamree and I will be coming next weekend. Carson has a lacrosse game at 1:30 p.m. and Cory is the coach so they can't join us.
