The sacrament of Holy Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life". It is another step into full initiation of the Catholic Church. Participating in the Eucharist unites us most fully with the Holy Trinity - God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit - and with one another. We join with Christ and the community of believers in giving thanks and praise to God the Father.
The Eucharist is the memorial of Christ's Passover. It is the sacrificial memorial of Christ and His body. It is the presence of Christ by the power of HIs word and of His spirit.
This is our Catholic faith. We believe that the bread and wine, offered at Mass, truly become for us the Body and Blood of Christ.
The children of our parish celebrate their First Holy Communion in the third grade.
