First Communion

I grew up Catholic, and in the Catholic faith your First Communion is a pretty big deal. Lots of CCD classes leading up to it, you make your first confession just before, and every girl wears a white dress. Not so for the Lutherans. We did two classes the week before and I had to chuckle to myself at certain parts. The pastor would say “Is there a correct way to walk up to receive communion?” In my head I’m shouting YES! Same thing with how you place your hands to receive communion. The Catholics have rules for everything.

The Lutherans, not so much. Once we did the classes the girls could have their First Communion any time after that. They suggested Palm Sunday, but it really didn’t matter. There was also no dress code, although since they needed dresses anyway, I bought white dresses. It would have been weird for me if their dresses weren’t white!

They were both a little nervous beforehand, but did great. Thank you to my parents for coming up to make the day extra special! Afterwards we went out for brunch and that was that!
