Congratulations to the 104 children who received their First Holy Communion this past May! It was a beautiful day for the children and their families. Our sincerest thank you to Michael Henseler and Lee Zack (Liturgy Committee) for the Liturgical decorations in church for this special sacrament! We are also so appreciative of the Ladies of Charity for the beautiful handmade rosaries for our parish first communicants. Thank you all for making First Communion such a wonderful day for all!


At the 9:30 am and 1:30 pm masses, Fr. Leon gave the children a visual to remember how throughout their lives (glass cylinder), they can receive God's grace through the sacraments (items in the cylinder represent different sacraments) to fill their lives to the brim!

At the 11:30 am mass, Fr. Paul showed the children that our faith in God is what helps us juggle the different aspects of our lives; we need to focus on our faith to keep it all going!    




We are so pleased that we were able to have three First Communion Masses in 2020! Here are some snapshots from this past summer.


From all of us at FFF...God Bless you and Congratulations!
