The Sacrament of First Holy Communion.

   
     

The First Holy Communion is one the seven sacraments in the catholic church. This sacrament is the third sacrament of initiation.
It is called initiation because like baptism and confirmation, it brings us into the fullness of our life in Christ.
Another name for the sacrament of Holy Communion is the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. (Eucharist is the greek word for thanksgiving)

The First Holy Communion sacrament is an important event in the journey of a child's faith. The sacrament has a deep symbolic religious meaning that is significant to the family of the child and the community of the church.

First Holy Communion is offered by the priest at every mass and refers to Christ's body and blood present in the consecration host at the altar.
When Jesus was with his 12 Apostles at the last supper, he took ordinary table bread and wine, gave God's blessing and thanks and distributed it to his Apostles saying. This bread is my body, this wine is my blood, everytime you eat this bread and drink this wine in my name, I will be present with you.

At this moment ordinary bread and wine becomes the grace of God, the body and blood of Jesus Christ.
When receiving the Eucharist(bread) for the first time, you're intimately united with Jesus Christ and also expressing your union with all Catholics who believe in the same doctrines.

The Holy Eucharist is a coming together as disciples of Christ to receive bread and wine, just as Jesus and his Apostles gathered at the last supper.
This is truely one of the most important sacraments for a catholic because we are receiving Jesus in our bodies and in our souls and we become union with him.
The Holy Eucharist is the physical re-enactment of Christ's last Supper before dying on the cross.

For this important sacrament parents can be challenged to find suitable clothing for their child to wear.
On this special occasion girls traditionally wear white dresses with either a veil or headpiece.
Boys can wear either a formal suit or smart shirt, tie and pants.

The child will need to take the sacrament of Reconciliation first before they can receive the sacrament of First Holy Communion.
The sacrament of Reconcilation is where a child confesses their sins for the first time before making their First Holy Communion.

"Goo Goo Gear offered a more modern style range of Christening gowns for babies not the OLD fashioned white, dull and very unimaginative range other stores have. The customer service was well above standard where staff were helpful, courteous and efficient with my order they followed up all my requests promptly....even when I couldn't make up my mind, as I have never ordered online before, they were still very courteous and polite. I have recommended Goo Goo Gear to my friends and can't wait to see the new range of clothing. K Habes, QLD
