Eucharist (Holy Communion)
“And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
The Eucharistic Sacrifice, the memorial of the death and resurrection of the Lord, in which the sacrifice of the cross is perpetuated, is the summit and the source of all Christian worship and life; it signifies and effects the unity of the people of God and achieves the building up of the Body of Christ. All Catholics who have been initiated into the rites of the Church may celebrate the Eucharist with us at our various Masses. The faithful are to hold the Eucharist in highest honor, taking part in its celebration, receiving the Sacrament devotedly and frequently, and worshipping it with supreme adoration.
The schedule of Masses are as follows:
Saturday Vigil: 4: 00 pm
Sunday: 9:30 am
Tuesday through Thursday and Saturday: 8:00 a.m. Friday: 12:10 P.m.
Adoration of the Blessed Eucharist: This adoration is available on the second Tuesday of each month, in the Parish Center Chapel, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Can you spend an hour praying with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament?
First Communion for Children
The Religious Education Program prepares children for the sacrament of First Holy Communion when the child is 7 years or older. Classes are offered in April.
First Communion for Adults
Adults receive preparation to celebrate the Sacrament of the Eucharist in a special program known as the Rite for the Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A). This program begins every year at the parish in September and concludes after Easter.
