Please join us for the monthly prayer group in St. Columbas in Douglas at 7:30pm on Friday the 8th December 2023


The 6th December 1907 was the day Little Nellie of Holy God received her First Holy Communion. It was one of the most special days in her short life of 4 years. It was a day she longed for and needed to satisfy her hunger for Holy God. She deserved it with the devotion she had at such a young age.

This the the hymn that was sang for her on her Communion Day.

O Mary dearest Mother
In God's sweet scented bowers
Will you gather for a little child
A wreath of fragrant flowers
I wish my Little heart to be
A cradle fair and gay
Where my Blessed Jesus may repose
On my First Communion Day
