“The Eucharist is essential for us: it is Christ who wishes to enter our lives and fill us with His grace. ”
~Pope Francis

Who Can Receive Holy Communion?

All are welcome at St. Joseph Community and at Mass we believe the Body and Blood of Jesus to be fully present in Holy Communion and as such there are some guidelines to receiving Holy Communion.

A person receiving should be a part of the Catholic Church and in good standing, meaning they are not in a state of mortal sin. Christians of other denominations are welcome at Mass, but are asked to refrain from receiving Communion. All who are not receiving Communion are invited to come forth for a blessing as a part of the Communion receiving line. To indicate that you would like to receive a blessing, simply fold your arms across your chest and the Priest or Deacon will give you a special blessing.
