Last week Wednesday was the annual May Crowning Mass of Mary, and as is the norm the 2nd graders attended in full Communion regale and ran the Mass. Smiley literally opened the service with the following:
Good morning, and welcome to our First Eucharist at --[school]--. Jesus said, "I am the Bread of Life, Whoever Comes to Me will Never Be Hungry, and Whoever Believes in Me will Never be Thirsty."
Later, he was the male student chosen to accompany a girl up to the statue of Mary to place a crown of flowers on her head.
After the Mass there was a nice reception - one Lisa and I couldn't attend because of a prior doctor appt.
Great Job Little Man!
