Oh god, don't even talk about my Holy Communion, what a day that was!
I was supposed to it with the rest of my class, in a big ceremony in the church. Unlucky for me, I was away on holiday at the time
, so when I returned I had to do it alone, in the church, surrounded by all the regular churchgoers.
I had to go up there, on my own, and receive communion from the priest. I was folding my hands wrong and he had to show me how to fold them probably, all in front of a huge crowd of churchgoers!
After this, we were lounging around outside when our priest came along and started talking to us. After a while, we had someone managed to talk him into joining us for dinner.
So we went along to the restaurant, with Father Jim in tow, and had a big meal. Think Father Jim had a little too many glasses of wine because he seemed rather worse for wear at the end from what I can recall.
So yeah...my Holy Communion was a little more interesting and unique than anyone elses in my class.
