I have stumbled into a treasure cave. The last First Communion camp I did was 28 years ago! So much to lay my hands on....... Thank you and God Bless.

I have been asked to do first communion prep this year. While I said yes it caused some panic as this isn't something I have ever done and I only joined the church four years ago. What an amazing list. Thank you so much!
