Eucharist is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation. Eucharist is the reception of Jesus’ Body and Blood in the consecrated bread and wine. Jesus gave us the Eucharist at the Last Supper.
As Catholics, we believe that Jesus is truly present in the bread and wine. As such, there is great care and reverence toward the Eucharist, including proper time for preparation before reception of the Eucharist.
Typically, children in 2nd grade prepare to receive their first holy communion. For more information, check out our Faith Formation program. Adults wishing to know more about the Sacrament of Eucharist are encourage to join us for RCIA.
