At First Communion
Out of respect for the dignity and holiness of this Liturgy, no photography, or videography is allowed until after the Mass. Please respect the parish's desire to celebrate this sacrament without distraction and with everyone participating fully in prayer. A professional photographer will be at each of the First Communions to take a picture of your child as he/she receives Jesus for the first time. This picture is a gift from the parish, therefore, free of charge. If you would like to purchase additional pictures, you will communicate directly with the photographer.
