Eucharist 

“When we receive the Real Presence of the Lord and say ‘amen’—I agree –so be it—we are in Communion with him and saying yes to living as his Body in the world—it’s a huge responsibility and a miraculous joy.”

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life and the sacrament that sustains us for the faith journey. In the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself. In the Eucharistic celebration (Mass) we unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life. The Eucharist is celebrated every weekend by the community as well as every weekday.

Children who are at least in the second grade spend the year from September until Easter preparing to receive the Body and Blood of Christ for the first time in communion with the rest of the church during the Easter Season.
