(One Bread, One Body, One Lord of All)
Of all seven sacraments, the Holy Eucharist, or Holy Communion, is the most significant and central to Catholicism. Holy Communion is offered at every Mass. In fact, the ritual of the Mass consists mostly of preparing the hosts (wafers made of wheat and water) and wine to become the body and the blood of Christ and preparing the congregation to receive the body of Christ.
All of us come to the Eucharist through our Baptism. Our Baptism calls us to live as Jesus lived and to love as Jesus loved. We offer First Holy Communion in second grade.
If your child was not baptized at St. Joseph’s Church, you will need to provide us with a Baptismal certificate to participate in communion.
