The word ‘communion’ means ‘to be united with’. Catholics believe that in Holy Communion, we are united in a special way with Jesus Christ. “Take this and eat, this is my body”, Jesus said of the bread he shared among his followers at his last super. Then taking a cup of wine he said, “take this and drink, for this is my blood”.
Catholics believe that in a mysterious way, when we receive Holy Communion, we are sharing in the body and blood – the very life – of Christ our Savior. Holy Communion, and the whole service (Mass) is also known as Eucharist, from a Greek word meaning thanksgiving.
Congratulations to our second grade on the occasion of them making their First Communion on Sunday April 3, 10 AM Mass. Boys and Girls, Jesus loves you, very much just like your mothers and fathers. Every time you come to Mass with your family, you may receive His blessings. Always remember you want to be the best boy or the girl you can be. Again, congratulations! May the Lord bless you and your family. Fr. Chris
