Eucharist

The Sacrament of Eucharist
The Eucharist, the Real Presence of Jesus in His Body and Blood, is the greatest gift God has given to us.  Catholics who have received First Communion are encouraged to receive Communion at Mass regularly.  A person should be in a state of grace at that time.

For Children: 
In the Diocese of Portland, the sacrament of First Eucharist is administered in second grade.  Preparation for this sacrament begins in first grade.  To register for preparation classes, contact the parish office.
 
For children third grade through high school, we are happy to have you receive the sacrament of First Eucharist!  Please contact the parish office to make arrangements. 
 
For Adults:
If you are baptized Catholic but have never received the Eucharist, please contact the parish office to make arrangements for instruction. 

The Eucharist is celebrated during all of our mass times. Please click on the home page for regular mass times. Special masses are announced in the weekly bulletin.  The Holy Eucharist is a sacrament and a sacrifice. In the Holy Eucharist, under the appearances of bread and wine, the Lord Christ is contained, offered, and received.
