Jesus Christ is truly present in our midst. For Catholics, the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, one of the three Sacraments of Initiation is the most profound way we encounter the real presence of Jesus Christ.
The Eucharist is holy, a sacred celebration that brings us into close contact with the holiness of God. In the Eucharist the holiness of God is present to us in a unique way. We are made holy by the very act of participating in the Eucharist.
Thorough preparation of this sacred event is defined by opportunities for parents and baptized children in the second grade and beyond. The initial parent-child session begins with a focus on everyday symbols and images in our lives, connecting our personal stories to our faith story. We also consider that in the Eucharist, Jesus gives us the greatest gift we could ever receive-himself! It is our hope that our time together will help you receive this gift with great faith, joy and love.
