A lot of Catholic churches use to have First Holy Communion for the children on Mother's Day. For some years various Catholic churches have stopped doing this. Would a reason be that it interferes with the Sunday Mass?

Mother's day is a secular holiday that is not observed by the Church. Tying a major liturgical event into a secular holiday which is observed only in the United States seems to me to be wrong.

First communion is no big deal, it is just a regular Mass where the children come forward for communion for the first time.

At one of the Catholic churches in this diocese, the priest had the First Holy Communion discontinued on Mother's Day. He would have a morning Mass on a Saturday for the children to receive their First Holy Communion.

It's 'no big deal' in the sense that it is not something which is going to be disruptive or significantly extend the length of the liturgy. It's not as if one the Sunday of First Communion that you have to prepare for the liturgy to last two hours instead of one.
