I wish to God we were pagan after all oney we have had to fork out for our childrens first communion its a scandal that people who are not well off have to find 500 or more to cover cost of this event, when we lived in Holland all kids there who were Roman Catholic made their first communion in their school uniform at a weekday mass after which the school put a meal on for them, my heart goes out to parents here who are not well off and who try to keep up with others its a shame i beolieve though that in Foxford at one time the Parish Priest insisted that children wear school uniform to make first communion so that you cut out alot of the obscene spending of money that surrounds this event i wonder what others think ?
