The Eucharist is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ under the appearances of bread and wine, which is offered to us during the Holy Mass and is the food of divine life. The Eucharist sanctifies us and makes us partakers of the divine life.
At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.
The Lord addresses an invitation to us, urging us to receive him in the sacrament of the Eucharist: "Truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."
Our Parish takes the Body of Christ to the sick and homebound who cannot attend Holy Mass. If you need this service, please contact the parish office.
Likewise, children, youth and adults are prepared to receive this sacrament through the Religious Education programs.
