Second-grader Kaitlyn Remke, 8, of Johnsburg flips through the Bible before receiving her first communion during school mass at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Johnsburg Friday, April 17, 2015. Traditionally, girls wear a white dress on their first communion, which is a symbol of purity and a reminder of their Baptism.
