Eucharist

“…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).”
From Eucharist: Food for Mission, Pope John Paul II's 2004 Message Eucharist and Mission.

We celebrate the Eucharist at each Mass and on Holy Days, as announced.

Eucharistic Ministers are available to bring Communion to the homebound.
