What is Holy Communion?

Holy Communion (also called Eucharist) is the Holy Meal Jesus commanded Christians to celebrate in his memory.  Catholics eat Christ’s body and drink his blood when they gather for Mass.  Active Catholics participate at Mass every Sunday.

What difference can it make?

Holy Communion (Eucharist) is the source and summit of our life in Christ.  Catholics eat the body of and blood of Christ in order to form an alive Church, and be empowered for prayer, ministry and holy living.  The abiding presence of Jesus in the Eucharist is the only convincing reason for the longevity and aliveness of the Catholic Church!

What’s my next step?

If you’ve already received your first holy communion, join us at Mass and receive our Lord again!  If you haven’t received your first holy communion:

Adults: your first Holy Communion is part of your Baptism-Confirmation-Holy Communion path towards full Church membership.  Adults seeking First Holy Communion should contact Nancy Keegan or the Faith Formation Office.  For more information about the RCIA program please click here.

Children (8 years or older):  your first Holy Communion involves a two year preparation.  Catholic parents seeking First Holy Communion for their children should also contact Nancy Keegan or the Faith Formation Office.  For more information about our First Holy Communion program please click here.
