Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. . . . Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me (John 6: 53-57).
Holy Communion, the reception of the Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist, symbolizes and increases fellowship and union with Jesus and other baptized Christians in the Church.
Reception of First Holy Communion requires preparation through our parish Religious Education Program.
Please contact the Director of Religious Education, Julie Johnson for more details.
