My First Holy Communion

On the 1st of July 2018 I had my first Holy Communion at the Good Shepherd Parish. This is the last of the Sacramental programme and is the most important. We practiced in the school hall first how we were going to walk up and how we hold the hosts and the wine cup and also what we had to say. Miss Cultrera showed us how we should place our hands. I put my right hand underneath my left hand and then I go up to Father and he will say "this is the body of Christ" and then I say "amen" he then gives me the hosts. The hosts is a wafer or a little cracker. I received the hosts in my left hand and use my right hand to put it in my mouth. The hosts represents the body of Christ. Then I walked over to the next Father to receive the wine. Miss Cultrera warned us that the wine will be yukky but we had to drink our first one.  Father said "this is the blood of Christ" then I said "amen" I took the cup very carefully and drank just a little bit but I have to say it wasn't too bad. Miss Cultrera said that when we go to mass we don't have to have the wine if we don't want it but for our first Holy Communion we did. We had a big afternoon tea in the school hall after mass with all our friends and families it was fun.
