Holy Eucharist
The Holy Eucharist is offered to Catholics at every Mass. 
Catholics believe that the Bread and Wine are changed into the Body and Blood of Christ, consecrated by the Priest during the Holy Eucharist of the Mass. If you are not Catholic, we welcome you to our church and we invite you to approach the Altar with your arms crossed to your chest, and you will receive a blessing.

All Seven Sacraments were established by Jesus Christ during His Ministry and have been in use by the Church from its inception.

 

The Sacraments provide grace, from the sacrificial death of Christ on the Cross, to the faithful throughout their lives, from birth to death.

 

Reception of the Sacraments in accord with the teaching of the Church is the ordinary means of salvation for all the faithful.
