I wanted to ask for your thoughts on something. When I had my children, I was fallen away from the Church. Last year I came back to the Church, and want to get my children right in the Church as well. In our parish they don’t have and RCIC program for young children that haven’t been catechized before, so they said my daughters had to be in CCD for the year, which they have done. On June 26 they were Baptized (at ages 10 and 11) and in the coming weeks they will have their first confession and receive their first Holy Communion.
I was planning on having them dress nicely, but not like when I received my first Communion and wore and actual “first communion dress w/ veil.”
So, as I said, I am planning on having them dress nicely (dresses), do you think I should also have them wear a chapel veil or some type of veil to cover their heads for the first time? It will be only them two receiving their First Holy Communion at that particular Mass. What is your thoughts?
