My daughter is making her First Communion this week. The priest asked that we hold off taking pictures as the Arch Bishop does not like to have his picture taken in front of the alter
Anyone ever heard of this? if so what would be the reason

Yes. Pictures are not to be taken during the service. This is a very religious ceremony. Extremely Holy in fact. Many forget this and want the cute factor. Save the picture taking for after.

Why don't you just ask for the reason? Its your dd's ceremony and you deserve to know why you can't take pictures. You don't have to be disrespectful but never cower do anyone when it comes to your child

It's not just her Daughters ceremony it's other childrens also. Some of us take this very seriously. It's about the Child being able to take Christ into them physically for the first time. It's a very solemn ceremony, very serious. People clamoring to take a picture of their Child as they receive can cause disruption. So like I said save the pictures for after.

They ask the same during most ceremonies. Its a serious sacrament and they don't want so many people flashing pictures during it.
