Baptism and First Communion in Cathedral

Twelve children and two adolescents were baptised in the Cathedral on December 8, most from St Matthew's Anglican School in San Juan de Lurigancho. Later in the service, 37 received their First Communion on what was a very special day.
Bus loads of children and parents came from the school to their Cathedral Church. Those who received their first Communion had been prepared by Fr Jorge throughout the year and had been looking forward to this day for a long time. After the Eucharist there was cake and refreshments in the hall before the children made the hour long journey back to their homes.
Later in the day the Bishop and several of the clergy went on to St Mary's Church, where again there were Baptisms and First Communions. December 8 is a traditional day for First Communions in Peru.
