On May 8th 2016 eight of the boys and girls from Year 3 and 4 made their First Holy Communion at English Martyrs R.C. Church, Whalley.

The weather dawned bright and beautiful and helped to make the day even more wonderful.

It was a very special occasion for all concerned and was another step on their Sacramental Journey.

The children enjoyed every moment and as the photographs show there was a lot of happiness and love surrounding them.

They all had huge smiles on their faces throughout. The children read the bidding prayers and took up the offertory and did so with reverence and pride.

Father Price asked us all to remember what Jesus did for us when he shared His last meal with his disciples and this too will be a day for us all to remember.
