Worship & Sacraments
Sacrament of Eucharist
The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Catholic life and our faith. It is the sacrament in which Jesus is truly present - Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity under the appearances of bread and wine. Just as our bodies need nourishment to live, our souls also need nourishment. The Eucharist is our spiritual food. Because the Eucharist is our source of spiritual nourishment, it is beneficial to receive the sacrament frequently. By attending Mass each Sunday we are able to receive Holy Communion once a week. However, because our Church also celebrates Mass daily, we are able to receive Our Lord even more often.
Through worthy reception of Communion, grace, the life of God is increased in our souls, bringing us closer to Him and helping us to be spiritually stronger.
