Communion at Nespelem
During Father Edward Griva's visits to the missions, he was heavily involved in church activities. One of his most notable involvements in the church was giving communion. Father Griva prepared people for their First Communion, including many children. He also gave communion to many native peoples. To help prepare those who were to receive their first communion, Griva taught Catechism. Griva would give mass on the missions and was delighted the ceremonies brought together Catholics and non-Catholics, many of whom received the Holy Communion.
