Today is the day we have all been waiting for! People came from different villages and the Mirador clinic closed their doors a little early to join the celebration of the First Communion of six excited little girls in La Colonia. They were donned in Communion dresses that were donated by the SAOP community and white flip flops that were embellished with flowers and little crystals. It was beautiful to see their reverence for the Sacrament.
Father Luta invited everyone to stay afterward for the festivities. There was music, a movie, and a 200 pound pig! The fellowship lasted well into the late hours of the night. Next year, there is said to be over 30 children receiving their First Communion - a reason to celebrate indeed!
