In brief, the Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” – CCC 1327
“‘This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me’. And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant of my blood which will be shed for you.'” – Luke 22:19-20
Eucharist is the sacrament of initiation that invites us to receive Christ’s Body and Blood. It is Christ’s special gift of Himself and it is the heart of Christian identity. Catholics believe that Jesus instituted the sacrament of the Eucharist at the Last Supper and celebrate it at every Mass. All are welcome to attend Mass, but reception of the Eucharist is reserved for practicing Catholics in good standing. If you have not received your First Communion (Eucharist) in the Catholic Church but would like to do so, please contact our parish staff!
If you are unable to attend Mass due to illness or other extenuating circumstances, but would like to have Holy Communion brought to you, please contact our Parish office for information!
