The Sacrament of Eucharist

“The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.”

~ Catechism of the Catholic Church #1322-23

Instructions for Communion for Persons with Gluten Sensitivity

As we prepare for communion with the elimination of chalices for the flu season, we want to remind persons with Celiac’s disease or gluten sensitivities that we have a cup specifically for your consumption by the Mary statue.

We kindly ask parishioners who are receiving a host at this Mass NOT to receive from this cup in order to avoid any transfer of trace amounts of gluten to the cup which may harm communicants with gluten sensitivities.
