“For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread, and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, ‘This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes”
1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Sunday is “The Lord’s Day” because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday. Jesus instituted the Eucharist when He said, “Do this in memory of me.” The early Church was devoted to offering the Eucharistic sacrifice. We are obliged to worship during Holy Mass on Sundays and other designated holy days. Christians place importance on whatever Christ said is important for our lives.
Our pilgrimage to the altar reminds us of our ongoing pilgrimage to share eternity with God in heaven. We will worship God unceasingly and experience a joyous communion with God beyond our imagining.
Holy Mass is the most important appointment of our week. We are participating in the one and eternal sacrifice of Our Lord, who was crucified, died, rose from the dead, and has ascended into
We prepare by cooperating with God’s grace in our choices and conduct. Our desire for the Eucharist moves us to make Christ-like choices in thought, speech, and action during the week.

Gluten Intolerance and Holy Communion
If you have a medical diagnosis of gluten intolerance or celiac disease, we have low gluten hosts (.01%) in the sacristy. Please let the Celebrant know that you need a low gluten host to be consecrated at least ten minutes before Holy Mass. You may also elect to receive the Precious Blood only if you are unsure about whether you can tolerate the low gluten. Medical certification is not required to be presented. Those who do not have gluten intolerance, but are making dietary changes anyway, are not eligible.
