The Eucharist is the source and summit of the whole Church’s and of the Christian life. Through baptism … there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male or female, but all are one in Christ Jesus … in which the assembly fully portrays the nature of the Church and its role in the Eucharist as it gathers together the men and women of every age and walk of life.
The mystery of the Eucharist is the central liturgical mystery of our faith since it is the mystery of God’s love and of Christ’s abiding presence. It is the mystery of a God who nourishes us and promises to be with us always. It is the Paschal Mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection, for “each time you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes” (1COR 11:26).
Eucharist for the Homebound and the Sick
Our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are volunteers who offer distribution of the Eucharist to those hospitalized, sick, or homebound parishioners. Please contact the Parish Office if you or someone you know wants to have the Eucharist brought to their home or care facility.
First Eucharist for Children
After Baptism, we continue our initiation into the Catholic faith by celebrating the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist. The Sacrament of Holy Eucharist is celebrated at different times and ages. Usually, the process begins at the age of 6 to 7. Preparation for this Sacrament has a requirement of at least two years. Children are involved in a process requiring enrollment in a Faith Formation program or our Catholic school. Parents become involved at home with user-friendly Eucharist preparation materials. Occasional parent sessions and family gatherings are required as well as a half-day retreat for both youth and parents before First Eucharist.
