First Communion

Gertrude and Ernst Meyer toured Dubrovnik on a Sunday morning. Just before 10 AM they encountered this group of youngsters all decked out in white robes, and carrying flowers so they could participate in a procession at the ten o'clock mass in which they would partake in their first communion. This is an important and memorable day in the lives of young Catholic parisioners.
