The Sacrament of Eucharist

“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'” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1323).

Eucharist is celebrated every Mass.

The Eucharist can also be celebrated in the hospital, at home for the homebound, or in nursing homes. Please contact the church office for more information.
