Sacrament of Eucharist

First Holy Communion 

 

Christ promised "Behold, I am with you /files/Faith Formation/Children/first communion girl w missal.jpgalways, until the end of the age"(Mt. 28:20).   In order to continue to be present throughout the ages until His return, Christ instituted the Eucharist.  He entrusted the Eucharist to His Church and it continues to be a source of communion and nourishment for his faithful.  The Eucharist is a direct encounter with Christ.  The Catholic Church confesses that the Eucharist is not simply a mere symbol, but the actual Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ.
