The Bread of the Eucharist

The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ under the appearances of bread and wine. It is the center of the life of the Church and of each Christian, a source of unity. The Eucharist is also a sacrifice – a memorial of the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ. Jesus gives himself in the Eucharist to nourish us for the work of building the Kingdom of God here on earth, as well as for our personal growth. In the Eucharist, we share fully in the Body and Blood of Christ, really present to us.

For children wishing to receive their first Holy Communion, contact the Faith Formation Office. Adults wishing to receive Eucharist for the first time, please see the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process.
