The Parish of Pedro Santana (one of the two parishes in the Bánica Mission) has a beautiful tradition of celebrating First Holy Communion on the Feast of Corpus Christi (which is celebrated on the traditional Thursday, rather than being transferred to the following Sunday). People in the DR refer to the day as “Jueves Corpus” (Corpus Thursday). The Parish provides veils for the girls on this special occasion. The children are pictured below with Father O’Hare. Oh Sacrament Most Holy…all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine!
