EDGEWOOD, Iowa (CNS) — Second-grader Taylor Garrison got the best birthday present ever April 12 — her first Communion. She received the sacrament at St. Mark’s Church in Edgewood on the day she turned 8.
Her journey to meeting Jesus in the Eucharist wasn’t easy, but came about through a combination of hard work, modern technology — like an iPad and the Internet — and God’s grace.
“I feel really excited,” she said told The Witness, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Dubuque, in an interview a few days before the special ceremony. “It was a little difficult, but I really wanted to have my first Communion.”
