Eucharist

 “This is the Lamb of God who has come to take away the sins of the world.
Happy are we who are called to this altar.”

The celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of our Catholic faith. By the words of the priest and the faith of the community gathered, the simple elements of bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ. This is especially true when we gather to hear God’s Word and share the Eucharist each weekend.

 

Since the Second Vatican Council, greater emphasis has been placed on the significance of the liturgy principle sections: the Introductory Rites, the Liturgy of the Word, the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and the Concluding Rites.
