"Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.”
In the Holy Eucharist, we receive the very body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. The Lord gave us the Eucharist at the Last Supper because he wanted us to share in the life of the Trinity, the loving communion of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We become united to God at our Baptism, and receive a further outpouring of the Holy Spirit at our Confirmation. In the Eucharist we are nourished spiritually, brought closer to God, again and again.
Children enrolled at St. Joseph the Worker School and in our Religious Education program receive First Holy Communion at a parish celebration each spring.
Teens and adults are prepared for the sacrament in the process called Becoming Catholic (RCIA).
