The Eucharist (Holy Communion)

The Eucharist is the “sacrament of sacraments”: all of the other sacraments point toward this great sacrament of unity.  The celebration of the Eucharist (Mass) is the “source and summit” of the Christian life.  In celebrating the Eucharist, the Church offers the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to the Father in a sacred meal.  The  community of Christ, gathered by the Holy Spirit, proclaims the Word of God, gives thanks to God the Father, shares in Jesus’ own Body and Blood through Holy Communion, and is sent forth to build up the kingdom of God. 

Grade School-age children work with our Faith Formation Catechists, preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the Fall and First Communion in the Spring.  Please contact the Parish Office for more information 513-825-0618.
