First Holy Communion Memento Project
from the Private/Parochial Chatboard
Posted by Barb/2/NE
Our students are given a white piece of felt with a dowel hot glued on top to its back. It has a white ribbon hot glued to the dowel [for hanging]. They are supposed to decorate this and bring it back for their First Communion. We hang it on the end of the pew that they and their family sit at for the big day.
They are given this "blank slate" at the first parent meeting in January, so they have several months to finish the project. They have such fun showing the class what they did with their parents. Most have the traditional symbols of wheat and grapes, but it's done with felt, puffy paint, real wheat, etc. They also always write their first and last name on it. They are beautiful keepsakes.
