Eucharist - First Holy Communion
"From the Eucharist comes strength to live the Christian life and zeal to share that life with others."
Pope John Paul II
Eucharist is the sacrament of Jesus' self-giving-love in bread and wine, His Body and Blood.
In the Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine, Our Lord is contained, offered, and received- He is really, truly, and substantially present in the Holy Eucharist.
We celebrate the sacrament of the Eucharist at every Mass-- daily and on weekends. See the Mass schedule at the bottom of this webpage.
Often First Communion is celebrated in about 2nd grade, but can be celebrated at any stage in life if not received before.
