Eucharist celebrates our life together as a community. It is the central act of worship for Catholics.

In the Eucharist, Christ is most profoundly present in the Church, which gathers to hear the Word of God and to share the nourishment of Christ’s Body with one another.
Eucharist is celebrated by the entire community at all Mass times.


First Communion

First Holy Communion is traditionally celebrated in the Spring of second grade, after two years of formal instruction in the faith.

Both children and parents participate in the immediate preparation of this sacrament.
Youth who are beyond second grade and have not celebrated this sacrament are required to be enrolled in the religious education program and will also participate in preparation for their First Communion.

Adult First Communion

Adults who wish to receive the sacrament of First Communion or “First Eucharist” should ask about the RCIA, Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Whether baptized or not, RCIA is the process in which adults are fully initiated in the Catholic Church.
