FORTY four children of the St Pius X Parish were joined by their families and members of the parish as they celebrated the occassion of their First Holy Communion on Sunday.

First communion marks the first time a child receives the sacrament of the holy eucharist and is one of the most important occasions in a Catholic's life.

St Pius X Parish priest Father Tom Rouse said the first Holy Communion celebrations marked the moment a child became a part of the community and took part in the work of the church.
