A lovely, funny First Communion moment today… We have a super-bright bunch of seven-year-olds who, when asked what is in the Tabernacle, immediately told us, “The Eucharist!” and when asked what the Eucharist is, piped up in unison, “The Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus!” How proud are we?! However, I couldn’t help laughing a short while later when we were recapping what the seven sacraments are. One girl told us that the sacrament dying people receive is, “The Avoiding of the Sick”… Definitely going to miss them after their First Communion Mass in a couple of weeks…..!

“The Avoiding of the Sick”
I live in Southsea and work for the Diocese of Portsmouth. My first love is for catechesis and evangelisation: until January 2013, I worked for a busy, thriving parish in south London coordinating the catechesis - sacramental programmes and adult formation. In November 2013, I completed my MA in catechetics at Maryvale Institute, Birmingham. View all posts by transformedinchrist

- The Annunication is a beautiful image of what we do in catechesis - we announce incredible, life-changing news just as Gabriel did to Mary.
