Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'
The Lord Jesus, on the night before he suffered on the cross, shared one last meal with his disciples. During this meal our Savior instituted the sacrament of his Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the Cross throughout the ages and to entrust to the Church, his Spouse a memorial of his death and resurrection.
At its heart, the Eucharist is a sacrament of communion, bringing us closer to God and to our brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ. The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." Through the Sacrament of the Eucharist, our church community is able to more closely Encounter Christ together and be spiritually fed and strengthened to Live as Disciples in our world.
On Sunday, we gather as the Body of Christ to celebrate the Lord’s Day, the day of Christ’s Resurrection.
