HOLY EUCHARIST

THE EUCHARIST

The last sacrament of initiation is the Eucharist. As any life physical or spiritual needs to

be nourished in order to grow and thrive, so God nourishes his Body on earth with the

Body and Blood of Jesus himself.

 

Eucharist means "thanksgiving" and recalls the last supper during which Jesus gave

thanks to the Father. In this liturgy the Christian community assembles to offer praise 

and worship to God the Father by offering back to him the greatest gift we possess, the

Body and Blood of Jesus and in doing we offer ourselves as well.

 

The Church is called together in unity and worship, nourished and then sent out to bring

the message of good news to family, friends and the world.

 

The signs and symbols used are quite ordinary, bread, wine and the words of

consecration.
