Babies' First Sunday Communion

The next day after the baptism, Sunday, the babies got to go again for Holy Communion. In the morning, as they were getting ready, Anastasia was playing with Paul, and he seemed to smile for the first time (see above).

Everyone walked to church. Here you can see James carrying his godson, Benjamin, and Pres. Pelagia carrying a baby. Pres. Sophia, Anastasia, and our friend Angela's daughter, Sophie, also helped.

Here they arrive in the back of the church, and everyone is happy to see the babies and say "Axios" to the new godparents.

Paul's godfather brings him for Holy Communion.
