Holy Communion


The Sacrament of Holy Communion is the third of the Sacraments of Initiation because it beings us into the fullness of our life in Christ. In Holy Communion, we are eating the True Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, without which¬†“you shall not have life in you”(John 6:53). Receiving Holy Communion worthily brings us graces that affect us both spiritually and physically.

Spiritually, our souls become more united to Christ, both through the graces we receive and trough the change in our actions that those graces effect. Physically, frequent Communion relieves us of our passions. By receiving Christ’s Bosy and Blood, our own bodies are sanctified, and we grow in our likeness to Christ.

The Sacrament of First Holy Communion is offered through our Religious Education Program. Please contact the Parish Rectory or Anna Harmata, our Religious Education Coordinator.
