First Communion Celebration Updates

First Communion

Obviously, because of the ban on gatherings which has been extended to May 4, the First Communion celebration at Saint Thomas More Church cannot be held. We will reschedule that date. Unfortunately, we cannot give a date until we know when we can gather safely together once again.

If the ban is lifted on May 4, we will celebrate First Communion as scheduled on May 17, at Saint Patrick, and on May 31, at Saint Louis de France. If the ban is extended, we will need to cancel and reschedule.

Again, any new dates cannot be scheduled until we get an “all clear.” I know this is frustrating, but it is our reality, unfortunately. Thank you for your patient understanding.
