HOLY EUCHARIST

FIRST EUCHARIST PREPARATION

When Jesus instituted the Eucharist he gave a final meaning to the blessings of the bread and the wine and the sacrifice of the lamb.

 

The Gospels narrate events that anticipated the Eucharist. The miracle of the loaves and fish, reported in all four Gospels, prefigured the unique abundance of the Eucharist.  

The miracle of changing water into wine at the wedding feast in Cana manifested the

divine glory of Jesus and the heavenly wedding feast in which we share at every

Eucharist.

In is dialogue with the people at Capernaum, Christ used his miracle of multiplying the loaves of bread as the occasion to describe himself as the Bread of Life: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. . . Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you" (Jn 6:51, 53)." - From the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults.

Children may attend classes to receive First Holy Eucharist after the age of 7. The

Diocese of Honolulu requires the child to be in religious education one year prior

to receiving the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. Beginning September 2018, children

who have received the sacrament of reconciliation, will be Confirmed and receive Eucharist on May 26, 2019. Please refer to the Reconciliation page for registration

forms.

Adults: If you have not received this sacrament and are interested, review the RCIA

information and class times. 

Contact one of the RCIA Team members at 681-3701 or 681-0963.
