In the Gospel, according to St. Mark, we read that Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me, do not prevent them, because the kingdom of God belongs to those who resemble them. “
Our future graduates will object to the word “little ones”, of course, but the message is there: there is an important place for young people in the church, and it is an important part of their lives.

Father Zisis officiated. He wished them a wonderful life and reminded them to always keep a place in their hearts for their community and their faith. Then he offered communion to whomever desired it and then blessed the congregation.
It was a beautiful ceremony.
