Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion)

 

Eucharist (from the Latin word eucharista, "thankfulness") is the sacrament in which the true Body and Blood of Christ, who is truly and substantially present under the appearance of bread and wine, is received in Holy Communion.  (from "Welcome to Our Church" available at the back of the church or in the parish office.)

The Catholic Church celebrates the Eucharist daily during Mass.

Traditionally, our 2nd grade Religious Education Children receive their first Holy Eucharist on a Saturday in May.
