I woke up and jumped out of bed on Saturday morning running into Mom and Dad’s room shouting “Daddy, Daddy Daddy, it’s my communion day!!! I ran down-stairs to Mom. She told me to get dressed and have my breakfast before going to the hairdressers at 8:30am. When I came back from the hairdressers, I watched telly until it was time to put on my dress. I was so excited! Then my Nana Pollough came because we were bringing her to the church with us. She said “Oh my goodness!” We took some photos and got into the car. The night before my communion, my cousins came over and gave me a Pick and Mix shop with jars of sweets. They had mini shovels like the ones in Pick and Mix and lots more. Before we left, I took a very sneaky last minute marshmallow out of one of the jars. When we got to the church, I went into the Porch to see my friends. We took our seats and the ceremony began. In the procession I carried up a photo of Mark. The first person up to the altar was Diarmuid. His job was to do the opening prayer with Aoife from Ballyglass NS. The next jobs were Peader’s Meadbh’s and Hugo’s. They were reading the Bidding Prayers. Then Erin and I were up! Erin read the first reading and I sang the Responsorial Pslam. I love singing and I enjoyed performing and I looked at the so I wouldn’t make any mistakes. I looked up for “He shepherds me” and saw everyone’s face smiling. After me was the second reading read by Ballyglass and then the prayers of the faithful and Father Roche said a few words. He then called up the people to bring up the gifts. Then it was time for us to go up to the altar to do the actions for the ‘Our Father’. When we came back to our seats it was time for the all-important moment of the mass. We got to receive our First Holy Communion. It felt exciting to go to the altar. By my opinion the host tasted like wafer. Afterwards we took a class photo and took our family photos. Then we went to Labane Hall where we had lots of treats and food. Then I went home and took photos on the bouncy castle. When my cousins came we put washing up liquid on it. It was so much fun slipping and sliding all over the place. We were soaking wet! Then we had food and I got to cut the cake! My cake was amazing and it had an angel that said M for Mark on it. Then everyone went in to watch the Connaught match and they won! I had such a great Communion Day!!!
