Jesus Comes to Brendan!

Today was a very big day in the Merkel household!
Today was Brendan's First Communion!

He looked so nice! He got all dressed up in his suit and tie.
He was just so grown up and such a little gentleman.

The Mass was wonderful and Father Jay did such a nice job with the kids.
He asked that no one take pictures during the Mass, which I thought was very nice for the kids. I took a couple as they were coming in...

And this is the class afterwards. Brendan is very proud of his new Crucifix.

Then Father Jay went inside to take pictures with all the kids.

This little boy was baptized on the same day as Brendan, at St Patrick's! His mom said they were watching the video and there we were! It was so neat to have them receive Communion in the same class. He was also on Brendan's Soccer team.

Congratulations on this holy day, Brendan. We are very proud of you. I wish we could have been there to celebrate with you. Thanks for the pictures.
In Christ, Your Godparents and Godfamily in the south.
