Holy Communion Instruction

All the baptized are always welcome to receive the Holy Food and Drink, including infants!  But many children want to learn more about the Sacrament.  On Sunday, June 11 at 9:15 AM, Mother Susan will meet in the Chapel with any children who want to learn more about Holy Communion.   All children are welcome, whether they have received Holy Communion before and wish to learn more about it, or if they have yet to receive Holy Communion.   Please email Lynn Mitchell to let us know if you would like to participate.
