First communion celebrations did not happen in the spring as they usually do, thanks to efforts to limit the spread of coronavirus.

Among those making up for lost time was the first group of youngsters from Christ the Teacher School. The group received first communion Saturday at St. Margaret of Scotland in Glasgow.

The original dates for the first communions were April 26 and May 3.

It was the first of three group celebrations for the St. Margaret’s first Eucharist Class of 2020. All three celebrations include St. Margaret of Scotland parish families. They are children from Christ the Teacher and from the parish Religious Education Program, as well as one candidate from Mount Aviat Academy.

Each communicant sat with their families and each family was distanced between two pews in the church. The communicants made their walk up the aisle to receive their first Eucharist along with their parents. After the communicants and parents sat down, all additional family members in attendance stayed in their pew and the Eucharistic ministers went to each individual pew and passed out the Eucharist.
