The celebration of the Eucharist is the “source and summit” for our lives as Catholic Christians. Jesus Christ instituted the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper when he said, “This is my body… take and eat. This is my blood… take and drink.” Adequate preparation is required on all of our parts to receive the body and blood of our Lord. Part of this preparation includes the understanding of the significance of this sacrament. The preparation begins when children are in the 2nd grade. If you are unable to attend Mass, arrangements can be made through the Parish Office to receive Holy Communion

Prayer before Communion:

“O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, who by the will of the Father and with the cooperation of the Holy Spirit has by Thy death given life unto the world: Deliver me by this, Thy most sacred Body and Blood, from all my sins and from every evil. Make me always cling to Thy commandments and never permit me to be separated from Thee.”
