Giving Holy Communion


In the celebration of the Eucharist, bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and the instrumentality of the priest. The whole Christ is truly present -- body, blood, soul, and divinity -- under the appearances of bread and wine, the glorified Christ who rose from the dead. This is what the Church means when she speaks of the "Real Presence" of Christ in the Eucharist.

The Eucharist is the second Sacrament of Initiation. If you have a child ready to receive his/her First Holy Communion, click here to see more information on our Faith Formation page. If you are an adult looking to learn more about becoming Catholic, click here to see more on our RCIA page.
