“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6:51)
- The Eucharist is the living bread from Heaven. The Eucharist is the Real, True and Substantial Presence of Jesus Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.
- After His Resurrection, it was in the breaking of the bread that Jesus’ disciples recognized Him. We are privileged with the opportunity to receive and adore our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament frequently through our parish liturgical and devotional schedule.
- In receiving the Eucharist, we become the Body of Christ. We are transformed and are united with our brothers and sisters in Holy Communion. Receiving the Eucharist is the foretaste or promise of what God has in store for us in Heaven.
- You are welcome to stop in during church hours to pray before the Blessed Sacrament. Please see our Devotion Schedule for Mass and Adoration times.
For information about First Holy Communion for children, please see our Catechism/CCD page.
If you are an adult who has not yet received Holy Communion for the first time please contact one of the priests.
