“…This is my body, which will be given for you; do
this in memory of me.” Luke 22:19
As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist, also known as Communion,
is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence
of Jesus, who died for our sins. As we receive Christ's Body and
Blood at each Communion, we are nourished spiritually and brought
closer to God.
“The goal of the Eucharist is precisely 'communion of
mankind with Christ and in him with the Father and the Holy Spirit'
(Ecclesia de Eucharistia, 22). When we take part in the Eucharistic
Sacrifice we understand more profoundly the universality of redemption
and, consequently, the urgency of the Church's mission with its
program which 'has its center in Christ himself, who is to
be known, loved and imitated, so that in him we may live the life
of the Trinity and with him transform history until its fulfillment
in the heavenly Jerusalem' (#60).”
