Eucharist

368975_orig

The Holy Eucharist is one of the sacraments of Christian initiation. There are many ways to approach the Mystery of the Eucharist, and the books on this sacrament could fill a library.  The General Instruction of the Roman Missal summarizes what the Vatican Council said in its dialog on the Sacred Liturgy “… in the celebration of Mass, in which the Sacrifice of the Cross is perpetuated, Christ is really present in the very liturgical assembly gathered in his name, in the person of the minister, in his word, and indeed substantially and continually under the Eucharistic species.”  Our recognition and response to his presence are ways we show reverence for the Lord in our midst.

Instruction in preparation for receiving the Eucharist for the first time begins at least in second grade with the stipulation that the student has been attending Religious Education Classes. If you are interested in having your child receive First Communion please call the Parish Office at 432-570-0952 for more information. But do note that registrations often come up in August while classes begin in September of every year respectively.
