Sacred Heart Celebrates the Sacrament of Holy Communion

Latest Posts

Of all seven sacraments, the Holy Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is the most central and important to Catholicism. Holy Communion is offered at every Mass, and in fact, the ritual of the Mass is largely taken up with preparing the hosts (wafers made of wheat and water, or gluten-free) and wine to become the body and blood of Christ and the congregation to receive the body of Christ. Transubstantiation is the act of changing the substances of bread and wine into the substances of the Body and Blood of Christ. 

The Holy Eucharist refers to Christ’s body and blood present in the consecrated host on the altar, and Catholics believe that the consecrated bread and wine are actually the body and blood, soul and divinity of Christ. For Catholics, the presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist isn’t just symbolic, it’s real. 

For the first time on Sunday, May 6 and Sunday May 13 at our 11:00am Masses our second-grade students will experience their First Holy Communion. What a joy for them to come to the table of Our Lord and share in the Eucharist with their family, friends and parish community. Let us keep these young ones in our prayers as they receive the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
