The Holy Father tells us that Jesus has a plain and simple wish for us: to be united with God. We find this communion in the Eucharist. The Eucharist is the outstanding moment of encountering the living Jesus Christ. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate actively and worthily in this communion.
Like conversion, our search for unity is a journey. We live in a world divided in many ways. A world where countries, states, communities and families suffer brokenness and violence. Again, Pope John Paul II encourages the lay faithful who are the leaven in the loaf. “The renewal of the Church will not be possible,” he says, “without the active presence of the laity. Therefore they are largely responsible for the future of the Church” (The Church in America, 44).
Join us for Mass and Communion. If you have been away for a while and are unsure about how to come back, here are some choices for you.
“The cup of blessing we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ?” (1 Corinthians: 10:16) The Christian joins the sufferings and death of Christ, dying to sin and arising to new life.
