First Communion retreat held

The Daily Iowegian

---- — On Saturday, April 13 a first communion retreat was held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. During the retreat the children made Shepherd’s Bread, each child was able to participate in making the bread with the assistance of Joyce Moore. While they waited for the bread to rise they watched a video “Grandmother’s Bread.” It is a story about a special relationship between a grandmother and grandson. It has a great family meaning and a good message about First Communion. The children participated in other activities during the retreat and a walk through of how to receive communion for the first time.
