- First Communion Novenas;
- A Letter to My Daughter on her First Communion Day; and
- Common Loons in Minnesota
(Okay, so that last one is an anomaly, I’m sure.)
I am more than happy to share the letters that I wrote to Cate and Felicity with you. Here they are:
in her typically chipper little way, “Well, it broke my heart!”
Now I just need to get the original letters into my daughters’ scrapbooks!
(To that end, I gave Cate her scrapbook this past weekend. “You have more time than I do,” I told her. “Will you put your First Communion scrapbook together?”)
(It’s only been two years.)
I am also more than happy to share the First Communion novena that we do at our church. It’s a bit more geared toward little girls, being flowery and all, but you can certainly focus on the daily virtues with your sons and have them dutifully crank out the drawings.
(That’s what I did with Jem four years ago.)
(Though granted, your son may be more of a James Audubon than mine.)
Here’s the link to the First Communion novena: “A Garden fit for My King”
A Very Special First for Felicity
It doesn’t have a title page so you should make one of your own with a picture of your child or a holy card or a drawing, etc. along with the date of his/her first holy communion.
Also, it’s in Google document format which is new for me. Can you let me know if the link works for you? Thanks!
