On Sunday, May 17, 57 children from Medjugorje parish received for the first time the sacrament of Holy Communion. Fr. Dragan Ruzic celebrated the solemn Holy Mass at 10 a.m., and celebration was more solemn and beautiful thanks to the singing of children's choir "Doves of Peace", conducted by Sr. Irena Azinovic. Two days prior to this solemn sacrament, children had the sacrament of the Holy Confession for the first time, in the company of their parents who confessed together with them. After the solemn Eucharist in the church, celebration continued in their private homes.
