On Wednesday, August 21st, the Catholic Church celebrates the Memorial of St. Pius X. As the Pope at the be-ginning of the twentieth century, he made many important contributions. Children can be grateful to him for low-ering the age of First Communion to seven years of age. Before that, most children waited until they were fourteen years old to begin receiving the Eucharist. Today, remember your First Communion Day and say a prayer of gratitude for the privilege of receiving Our Lord at Holy Communion and for all those people who celebrated with you. Pray for our kids, and help get everyone enrolled for Faith Formation as soon as possible so we can order books. Classes begin in September.
