Holy Eucharist

Holy Eucharist
As Catholics, the Holy Eucharist is central to our faith. The Real Presence of Christ is available to each and every Catholic during every Mass. It is because of Christ's great sacrifice that we are now able to be spiritually fed in the Eucharist, strengthening us to go forth and live out our call to discipleship and sainthood.

At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted
the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.
