Alessio`s First Communion
On Sunday Alessio had his First Communion and to celebrate my parents came out from Scotland for the occasion. I think Alessio was a little nervous that morning as he could`t wait to leave for the church. His other grandmother came, along with his Uncle Luca and Aunt Andrea and their two children Valerio and Mattia and also my friend Arlene.
We arrived just before 9.30am and all the kids got their photos taken, then we waited for the beginning of Mass at 10am. Their was a band playing for the occasion and they were very good, it really lifted everyone. Alessio had two readings which he read out loud very well. All the kids did very well indeed and no one seemed nervous at all. In fact I was probably more nervous than Alessio!
Afterwards all the children, the priest and the ladies who helped the children with the communion got a group photo. Then we could photos with the family, poor Alessio was getting totally sick and tired of getting his photo taken. There was an apero at the church and then we headed off into Zurich for a meal.
Alessio got really lovely presents and he was very happy. It was a lovely day!
