The Eucharist is the source and summit of our Christian life. In the celebration of Eucharist (the Mass), Jesus Christ becomes truly present under the appearance of bread and wine. St Paul tells us that our sharing in the Eucharist is in reality a sharing in the Body of Blood of Christ himself, which he left us as an everlasting covenant. When we receive the Eucharist (also called Holy Communion), we receive the real presence of Jesus himself – body, blood, soul and divinity. By this Sacrament we are united spiritually with him and are built up more and more into his Body.
Catholic children who have already celebrated their First Reconciliation are invited to prepare for their First Holy Communion through our parish Sacramental program. First Communion will normally be celebrated shortly after Confirmation.
