Once in a Lifetime

Sasha, Pio and their cousin Clare had their first Confession and Communion last week.

Fr Dennis, the Captain’s youngest sibling, flew in from the Phils to celebrate with us. He gave the kids their first holy communion.

The event was awe inspiring. I cannot describe the joy I felt when our children received Our Lord for the first time from the hands of their own uncle.

I wished I can freeze that heavenly moment.

We had morning tea at home with the family and our close friends from the parish, mostly those who attend daily Mass. It was a warm and lovely gathering. I wish we can have more of this.

The kids love Fr Dennis. This was the first time they met him. Hopefully not the last. They kept on asking about him when he left. Too soon.

Anton probably called his name 100x while he was around.

Hopefully one of our 4 boys turn out like him. That will be a great honor and grace.
