First Communion Novena

A dear friend shared a beautiful family novena to be prayed prior to First Communion Day. If it's too late for you to do the nine day prayer, it was also suggested to do the last 3 days prior as a Family Triduum prayer. We'll be starting ours here Friday in time for Sam's First Eucharist on Sunday, May 3rd.

That is beautiful! I wish I had known about that in the days of my children's First Communions...

Jamie- I really like this. I typed out a copy to send home with my students today if you would like to make copies also I will have it with me.

This is beautiful! We prayed it tonight, even though we are a little late starting (we have First Communion this weekend). We just "played catch-up" because I felt all of the prayers were so important. I love that it's relatively quick so as to not lose anyone. We have a busy week, and will have to be creative about getting this in, but we will make time for it.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I really appreciate it!
