Today I Made My First Communion by Dianne Ahern, is both a storybook and a keepsake book to commemorate a First Holy Communion. The storybook section uses the curiosity of children and a touch of 'who-done-it' drama to help a First Communion class develop an understanding of their faith.
Best friends Maria and Riley venture into the church alone and a little unsure on their way to First Communion class. As the weeks progress, their comfort grows along with knowledge of the Church and its teachings. However, they struggle to solve the Mystery of the Eucharist. It takes a devoted parish staff, a lot of prayer, and some help from above, but they do resolve the mystery and joyfully make their First Holy Communion.

Today I Made My First Communion by Dianne Ahern has a section called “Memories of My First Communion Day” which provides space to describe this special day and to insert pictures and other mementos.
