Communion Comments Cause Commotion

 

In September 2017 it was announced that primary schools will no longer run preparatory classes for first communion. This affected roughly 4000 students in 12 community national schools. Some children breathed a sigh of relief (although this worthy tradition has gone from strength to strength in a more private manor).

 

 

The RELIEF they felt were about very specific areas – as they say out of the mouths of babes comes truth…

The Bread…

They wouldn’t miss the anxiety and worry over what the communion bread would taste like.

Don’t Dirty The Dress…

They wouldn’t miss having the opportunity to have their favourite meal without getting their outfit dirty.

On Display…

They wouldn’t miss having to participate in a fashion show for the rest of the school/class in your dress, gown or suit the following Monday or how much standing they would have to do in the preparation and waiting around for communion to take place.
