Holy Eucharist

The Eucharist is celebrated within the context of the Mass. In the celebration of the Mass, during the Eucharistic Prayer, Christ becomes present, body and blood, soul and divinity, under the forms of bread and wine.


At consecration, Christ's saving action, His passion, death, and resurrection are once again enacted and offered, so that we the faithful, acknowledge and celebrate the saving action of Christ.


The reception of Communion at Mass is a sign of our belief in the redemptive power of Christ in our personal lives, in the Church, and in the world.


The Mass is celebrated Sundays and weekdays at All Saints. The desire of the Church is for all of the faithful to gather on Sundays and Holy Days. The faithful are also invited to daily Mass. 


The holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord's own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist. CCC 1322


"At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'" CCC 1323
