Our Parish is blessed to bear the name of Holy Eucharist. Recently, Pope Francis in his letter to the people of the Amazon wrote: The Eucharist “makes the church.” The word Eucharist comes from the Greek language and means Thanksgiving!
Catholics believe that in Holy Communion we are united in a special way with Jesus Christ. Jesus is the one who nurtures us in our life’s journey.
At his last supper on earth, “while they were eating, Jesus took a loaf of bread, and after blessing it he broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body.’ Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins” (Matthew 26:26-28). Jesus said this to his followers, and he is saying the same thing to his believers right now: “Take and eat, this is my Body!”
