'Family First Communions' In Portland PORTLAND, Ore., July 7 (NC) -- The Portland arch- diocesan Confraternity of Chris- tian Doctrine has made "Fam- ily First Communions" a part of its permanent program. Sister Paulita, speaking for the P o r t I a n d archdiocese's CCD, said an experiment be- gun four years ago in a Port- land parochial school and last year by CCD classes has been a great success. Under the new program, parents help prepare the child for reception of his First Holy Communion and the child re- ceives the Host for the first time with his family at a Sun- day Mass. "We suggest that the child not be told this is the greatest day in his life--his Baptismal day was of much more im- portance," said Sister Paulita. "But it should be made a very special family day, with a festive breakfast afterwards." First rows of seats in the parish church are reserved for families whose children are making First Communion, gen- erally at the Mass the family customarily attends. The names of children receiving commu- nion are announced and in- serted in the parish bulletin on the following Sunday. MSgr. Thomas J'. Tobin, Vicar General of the Portland archdiocese and pastor of All Saints parish, whose parochial school first launched the family communion plan, cited some of its benefits: --Making the reception of the sacraments for each child a part of the family's total liv- ing of the Faith; --For many, the elimination of unnecessary expense.
