After a year of spiritual preparation, students throughout our Idente parishes joyfully received the holy sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation on April 20 during Holy Saturday of the Easter Vigil. This included kids, teens, and adults from our Long Island churches: Our Lady of Loretto in Hempstead and St. Luke’s in Brentwood, where for the first time two young adults with disabilities were given their First Holy Communion. Likewise, the sacraments were celebrated at our churches in the Bronx: Our Lady of Solace and St. Dominic’s.
Families came together in great numbers to share in this great celebration of union with our Heavenly Father. With gladness in our hearts, we rejoice in gratitude for the wonderful gifts conferred on them this Easter season and we look forward to celebrate the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation with more of our students next month.
