Holy Eucharist

“I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world” (John 6:51)


The Eucharist is the greatest of all the sacraments and is not merely an instrument for the giving of grace—here is the actual Giver of grace Himself, Jesus Christ our Lord truly and personally present.

The Eucharist contains the Real Presence of Jesus: it’s the real Jesus—He is truly present, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity.

Please consider service to our parish community by helping with the Liturgy.  This includes being an altar server, an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion, a lector, part of the adult or children’s choir and much more!

Deepen your prayer life by committing to spend time in front of the Blessed Sacrament during our adoration times (see list to the right).

Daily Mass Readings

First Holy Communion for Children

Children normally receive their first Holy Communion during 2nd grade after being prepared by the parish school, by the religious education office, or by a home school program. For more information on First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation, please click here.

If your child is enrolled in the parish school or home school, please notify the Office of Religious Education that you would like your child to receive the Blessed Sacrament by emailing [email protected]

If your child did not receive his or her first Holy Communion yet and is past 2nd grade, please contact the Religious Education Office.  Give your child the gift of sharing in the Eucharist.  We would love to work with you.

First Holy Communion for Adults

Adults who have never received Holy Communion but would like to prepare to receive Jesus in the Eucharist or simply desire more information should work through the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program.  Please see Religious Education for more information and to contact us.

Information for Home Visits

If you, a family member or friend is unable to attend Mass on Sundays, please contact us to schedule a home visit where a priest or an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion can visit and bring the Eucharist.
