Twin brothers Kimi and Miti celebrated their first Holy Communion at Saint Agnes Parish church yesterday.

Kimi Nagauna and Miti Waivono, 10, are in Year Five at St. Agnes Pri­mary School in Mead Road, Nabua.

The duo are the youngest of three other siblings.

Their father Iniakasio Mudu, said he was happy and full of joy that finally all his children have re­ceived the sacrament of Holy Com­munion.

“I am very pleased that all my five children had their Holy Commun­ion which we also went through when we were children,” Mr Mudu said.

The 45-year-old from Cunning­ham resident said he and his wife Mareta Waivono started preparing for this day from last year.

“We wake up early in the morn­ing and prepare our children to get ready for church and for their classes,” he said.

Both parents worked together to make their children know about God and their culture.

“All Catholics look forward to re­ceive Holy Communion and it is important for our children to also know about the sacraments,” Mr Mudu said.

The parents celebrated the twins first Holy Communion after church by going to McDonald’s with the rest of their children.
