The Eucharist is the very sacrifice of the Body and Blood of the Lord Jesus which he instituted to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until his return in glory. (Compendium Catechism of the Catholic Church, No 271).

  • The single most significant ritual and gathering together of the Christian family is the celebration of the Eucharist.
  • It is the source and summit of the life and mission of the Church.
  • It is a call to conversion.
  • It is a sign of unity.
  • · It is a response in our day as it was in days past when we were commanded by Christ: Do This in Memory of Me! (Luke 22:19)

 

To find out the times for the celebration of the Eucharist in our parish visit the Mass Times section.
