First Communion

Michael made his first Holy Communion today. It was so sweet. Now, all of my seven sons have had this beautiful sacrament. (Next year I get to pick out our first communion dress!) He also got to crown Mary for our May Crowning a few weeks ago- he's having quite a month. Grandma and Grandpa are here for the festivities, and having a wonderful time with the kids. I'll post a few pictures of Michael's special day:
God Bless Michael

  1. We have three beautiful daughters who are all 2 years apart.When they got older,rather than have to go thru First holy communion three times,and have thre separate parties,etc,we decided to wait and have all three make first communion at the same time.They were 7,9 and 11 at the time and it worked out great!all the friends and relatives had to make just on trip,instead of three and it was easier to plan.Our parish requires the full first communion outfit,so all three girls picked out their dress and veil,then it just a matter of getting the under shirts,cloth diapers,rubber pants,tights and white mary janes.the morning of their big day,i dressed them together and they all looked adorable and so pure and innocent.

  2. my daughter is 13 and making her first communion next month and has to wear the cloth diapers and rubber pants under her dress also.i have her diaper all made and the touth size rubberpants.I will be looking forward to having her in all white for the day.

  3. Can any one tell me,does the cloth diapers and rubberpants and under shirt and white tights get put away in the box with the communion dress and veil?

  4. To anonymous-july 16-Yes,the cloth diapers,rubberpants,undershirt and tights are put away with the dress and veil.Our daughter made her FHC at age 13 and i put her diapers,rubberpants,undershirt,and tights in the box with her dress and veil and when she is confirmed in two years at 16,they will be brought out and put on her again and worn under her white confirmation dress.

    1. Our daughter made her First holy communion last may at 13 also and i did just the rubberpants and under shirt on her under her communion dress-no diaper! I babypowdered her good first,then put the rubberpants on her.I got them big enough to fit her a little loose.

  5. Our daughter is 9 and will be making her First Holy communion this comming May 2017.I am going to sew the cloth diapers together to make one diaper out of them and she have the youth size rubberpants over it.can any one tell me if i should use heavy duty thread to sew the diapers together with?

  6. To Anonymous,jan 19-Yes,Our daughter is 15 and finially making her First HOLY Communion on May 7th with the 7 and 8 year olds and i got a package of the Gerber flat cloth diapers in the 24x27 inch size that come 10 to a package and put heavy duty thread in my sewing machine and sewed the diapers together to make the one diaper out of them.I got a card of pink diaper pins to pin the diaper on her with and she will have a pair of white adult size medium,blousy fitting rubberpants over the diaper.Her Communion dress is poofy and to the top of the knees with the matching veil,and she will wear the lace anklets and the white 'mary jane'shoes with the dress.All of the little girls in her class will have the cloth diaper and rubberpants under their dresses as well.

  7. As a reminder,the first communion diaper,rubberpants and tights can be worn also for other special occasions and holidays!My two daughters have worn their communion diaper,rubberpants and tights in two weddings,under their Easter dresses,and their christmas dresses on christmas eve and day.They will wear them also under their white confirmation dresses when they are confirmed in 8th grade.
