First Communion Ritual in the All Saints’ Church in Poznan (Dyke Street). Because of excellent acoustic properties, the classical-style church is a venue for music concerts. The late-Baroque altar with statues of four evangelists on the sides depicts the Lord’s Supper (Jesus of Nazareth shared the last meal with his disciples). Both the upper Resurrection high-relief and organ gallery are unseen in the picture. On 13 May 2012, fully grown young children received first communion and for the first time in their life received the Savior (Jesus Christ in body and blood). They have been taught the basic theology of the true Divinity of the host. Their proud parents look on from every side taking pictures. The Catholic mass was a miracle taking place in front of the faithful, in remembrance of Our Lady of Fatima first apparition.
