What is Holy Communion or the Eucharist?
We believe Christ is really, truly, and substantially present in the Holy Eucharist. It is a sacrament and a sacrifice. In the Holy Eucharist, under the
appearances of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is offering himself to us to freely receive.
Because this is such a blessing to us. It is important you, or your child, are preparing for this Sacrament. Father Paul or Esther Jaeger would be happy to answer any questions you have in helping you understand the Sacrament more fully. To join the next session of preparation, please email Esther, our Sacramental Preparations staff.
