VATLURU: First Communion is a major milestone and meaningful occurrence in the life of every Catholic Christian.  It is not only a wonderful tradition but also an important milestone in growing into Godly young men and women. It connects our little children to the church and helps them participate in family traditions that have been observed for generations.  Jesus touched the lives, hearts, and minds of the children of Sacred Heart Church, Vatluru. About 100 children of the parish and substations received their First Holy Communion this month. The Holy Eucharistic Sacrifice was presided over by Rev. Fr. P. Bala, the Vicar General of Eluru Diocese. Fr. Francis Assisi thanked all.  This is such a special time for the children as well as the entire family.
