Yesterday we celebrated the Feast of Christ the King. A Solemn High Mass was celebrated at 9.30am in St Anthony’s Church. At this Mass nine children of the parish received their First Communion. They had been prepared for the Sacraments of First Confession and First Communion by Sister Mary Rose, O.P. and by Miss Philomena Ockerse, one of the postulants. The First Communicants behaved beautifully throughout the Mass and Procession, which was a long one with three Benedictions, at the home of Gerard and Antonia Gregory, at the Croquet Club, and back at the Church. After the religious part of the ceremony the children had a celebratory brunch with the priests and their immediate family.
