The Eucharist

The Sacrament of the Eucharist

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life"
(Catechism of the Catholic Church §1324).

Our life is centered on Jesus, who in John 6 stated clearly and repeatedly that He would give us his flesh as true food an His Blood as true drink. We believe what He said, that His love is so great as to become our very mourishment, and that in this wondrous way Jesus fulfills His promise to "be with you always, even until the end of time" (Matthew 28:20).

First Holy Communion

Our formation program to prepare children for their First Holy Communion is a two-year program beginning when the child is in 2nd grade. There is no cost to participate, but attendance at weekly religious education classes during the academic year is mandatory so that the children may know Who it is they receive in Holy Communion.
