First Communion: A Grand Franciscan Celebration

The faith community of St. Francis of Assisi joined other parishes across the country in welcoming the little ones to the Table of the Lord.  17 Hispanic children celebrated their First Holy Communion in grand style on Sunday, May 3.  We want to invite you to enjoy a glimpse of their glorious day!
