Holy Eucharist

Holy Eucharist

We welcome all baptized Christians to receive this sacrament.  If you attend our worship and are not able to receive this Sacrament for whatever reason, please come to the Altar to receive a blessing.  Indicate your desire to receive a blessing from the priest by crossing your arms over your chest.  No one will know your choice to receive or not except the priest and Eucharistic Minister.  It is a private matter.  

The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament commanded by Christ for the continual remembrance of his life, death, and resurrection, until his coming again. Holy Eucharist is the Church's sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving.  It is the way by which the sacrifice of Christ is made present, and in which he unites us to his one offering of himself. 

The outward and visible sign in the Eucharist is bread and wine, given and received according to Christ's command.

The inward and spiritual grace in the Holy Communion is the Body and Blood of Christ given to his people, and received by faith.   The benefits we receive are the forgiveness of our sins, the strengthening of our union with Christ and one another, and the foretaste of the heavenly banquet which is our nourishment in eternal life.  

When we come to receive this sacrament, it is required that we should examine our lives, repent of our sins, and be in love and charity with all people.

Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Sunday mornings and on Wednesdays at noon at All Saints.
