On a lovely sunny Sunday morning in May nine children from St Hugh’s Church, Newbold, Chesterfield, made their First Holy Communion.

  They were supported by family, friends and members of the whole community.  The children were very involved in the celebration; welcoming everyone to Mass, doing the readings, bidding prayers and Offertory Procession.

  At the end of Mass Fr Joseph Okeke, Parish Priest, thanked the children, parents and everyone present for coming along and making the event special; and both catechists, Sandra Asquith and John Harden, for preparing the children for reception of the Sacrament.
