FIRST HOLY COMMUNION
|What is Eucharist?
“Eucharist is the sacrament that
completes the process of initiation and is when one can fully
participate in the Eucharist by receiving Holy Communion.
Eucharist is unique among the sacraments
as it is at the heart of our faith. For Catholics, the Eucharist,
or Mass, is the most powerful way we encounter the real presence
of Jesus Christ. Sunday after Sunday (some, of course, gather
everyday), Catholics gather to celebrate the Eucharist, the ritual
in which, by the power of the Holy Spirit, bread and wine are
transformed into the Body and Blood of Christ. We who celebrate
are also transformed, becoming Christ’s presence to others, and
recognising the presence of Christ in others.”
Flame of Faith
receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion takes place in 2 parts.
RITE OF RECONCILIATION

light of the scripture, participate in a group examination of
