St. Aloysius Orphanage
1852 - 1945
"Whosoever Shall Receive One of Such Children in My Name Receiveth Me. Mark 9-36"

     Six children received their first Holy Communion in the chapel of the St. Aloysius Orphanage during the Mass held there at 6:30 o’clock this morning.

     The chaplain Rev. Alphons O.F.N. delivered a very instructive talk to the children who were about to receive, on the Lord’s Love for children and on the Sacrament which they were about to receive.

     In addition to the inmates of the Home a few relatives of the communicants were present.

First: The communicants were:

Maurice Fisk
