Holy Cross fifth-grader helps friend prep for first Communion

Moments after fifth-grader Isabella Bittles made her first Communion on June 14, her friend Addison Kelly was by her side to congratulate her.

Isabella and Addison are fifth-graders at Holy Cross School in Charlotte. When the logistics of preparing to receive the sacrament proved challenging for Isabella’s family, Addison stepped in. She asked her grandparents to bring Isabella to Sunday Mass each week, and Sister Laurie Orman met with the girls during their lunch periods to help Isabella prepare.

Isabella made her first Communion during a school Mass June 14, surrounded by her family, Addison’s family and their Holy Cross family.
