Eucharist

Registration for first communion classes begins in August.

The Eucharist is “the source and summit of Christian life.” The Eucharist is also the fulfillment of Christ’s promise to be with us always until the end of the age. This is because the Eucharist is truly the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. Jesus becomes present at every Mass when the Holy Spirit sanctifies¬†the bread and wine which transform into the Body and Blood of Jesus. While our human eyes only see bread and wine they are in substance the Body and Blood of Jesus. The reception of Holy Communion is how we obey Jesus when He says “unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.” The Church requires reception of Communion at least once a year, during the Easter season, but frequent reception is highly encouraged to better be reinforced with God’s graces.

Because we trust Jesus that it is His Body and Blood, we have to prepare ourselves to receive communion. We must be free of all mortal sin by going to the sacrament of Reconciliation, we must be baptized, and we must believe Jesus when He says that it is His Body. A person’s first communion is an important part of their spiritual growth. That is why we have yearly classes which prepare young communicants to receive the Sacrament.
