Children set to receive First Holy Communion may have to wait till September

The team in charge of the pastoral care of the Portuguese-speaking Catholic community at the Cathedral parish intends to celebrate the Feast of the First Holy Communion as soon as the local churches reopen. The ceremony, nevertheless, might be delayed until September, father Daniel Ribeiro told “O Clarim”. The First Communion Feast, that should have taken place on June 19th, was postponed for pandemic-related reasons.

It’s time for family and contemplating God in Covid-weary Macau

The aggravation of the epidemic scenario in Macau forced the Cathedral parish to postpone the feast of the First Holy Communion. Covid-19 hindered the Corpus Christi celebrations, but did not prevent them from happening. The ceremony was broadcasted live on the Internet. The procession that should have connected Saint Joseph’s School and the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady was, nevertheless, cancelled.
