It was Friday April 19, 1996. It was the last rehearsal before the sacrament on Sunday April 21. It was the last possible day to order a videotape of the First Communion. Our church was very particular about photography during the Mass, so the CCD program always had a videographer tape the First Communion Mass. I wasn’t going to order the tape, but at the last minute I did. I was extremely grateful afterwards. You see, I was nine months pregnant and scheduled for a c-section delivery of my daughter, who was in a breech position, the following Wednesday. She had other plans, however. At 3 in the morning on April 21, 1996, my water broke. At 6:32 that morning, my daughter, who had remained in a breech position, was delivered by c-section. I did not get to attend my dear son’s First Communion Mass. He got the unique First Holy Communion gift of a baby sister. The director of the CCD program announced at the end of Mass that He had a new baby sister. You can see on the video that both she and my dear son are crying. It is a day we will never forget. It is the only First Holy Communion date I can recall. I have recollections of all the others, but not the exact date. To this day, I cannot watch the video without getting a little teary-eyed.
