Eucharist and Wine

Sacraments

Eucharist

The Eucharist or Holy Communion is one of the sacraments of the Catholic Church.  This Eucharistic rite was instituted by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper; giving his disciples bread and wine during the Passover Meal.

The Catholic Church teaches that Jesus is present in a true, real and substantial way, with his Body and his Blood, with his Soul and his Divinity under the Eucharistic.

 During the consecration of bread and wine, both bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

Please contact the Parish Office for more information on the requirements on receiving the Eucharist.
