First Holy Communion: Next weekend we shall be celebrating the beautiful Feast of Corpus Christi. Let us pray for all our children from Newtown and Llanidloes who will be receiving Jesus, their Friend and Saviour, for the first time. May it be the beginning of a faithful relationship that will support them throughout life and bring them to heaven. Pray, too, that they will learn to value the sacrament of Reconciliation received for the first time this week. May God our Father give them, and their parents, abundant blessings and joy. Thank you to the catechists involved in the preparation of the children for First Holy Communion; Sara (Head teacher), Debbie Luke and Anne Evans
