Eucharist

 

I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and…remains in me and I in him. (John 6:51, 54, 56)

The Eucharist is celebrated at every Mass.  We believe that the Risen Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist. The Eucharist is not a sign or symbol of Jesus; rather we receive Jesus himself in and through the Eucharistic species. The priest, through the power of his ordination and the action of the Holy Spirit, transforms the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Jesus.

Receiving the Eucharist changes us. It signifies and effects the unity of the community and serves to strengthen the Body of Christ.

Preparation for First Holy Communion for children begins in the Religious Education Program.  

Adults who have not received First Holy Communion prepare in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
