What is the Sacrament of the Eucharist (Communion)?
“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.'”
How to Receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist (Communion)
Children are prepared to receive this sacrament in the Spring of 2nd grade. Preparation for this sacrament occurs through our Parish School of Religion (PSR) or by attending Saint Leo the Great School. Adults going through RCIA will receive this sacrament at the Easter Vigil, the culmination of their formation process.
