What is the Eucharist?

The Eucharist is celebrated at every mass.  Through bread and wine, we receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. The Eucharist draws us closer to Jesus and to all who receive His Body and Blood.

Why is the Eucharist important?

The Eucharist is the center of Catholic faith.  By receiving the Holy Eucharist, we remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, and we grow in love for one another. Jesus commanded us to love, to remember Him, and to wait for His return.  We do these things by receiving His Body and Blood.

Who can receive the Eucharist?

Catholics who have prepared themselves by fasting 1 hour before mass and by going to Confession regularly may receive the Eucharist. Traditionally, children who are 7 or 8 may begin preparation to receive their First Eucharist.

"Christians come together in one place for the Eucharistic assembly."
