The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life and all of the sacraments and ministries of the Church flow from the Eucharist.  The Eucharist is the gift of Christ’s very own body and blood which He gives to us out of His compassion and love.

The word Eucharist means "Thanksgiving" which we do every time we come together to celebrate Mass because we give God thanks for all the gifts and blessings He pours out in our lives.  The Eucharist itself is Christ’s Body and Blood that He gave to His disciples on the night of the Last Supper.  While at meal with His friends, He gave the Eucharistic to them which we remember every time we gather to celebrate Mass.

As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist is the real presence of Jesus Christ.  Bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ through the Holy Spirit as Jesus promised to His disciples.  The Eucharist is our spiritual food which provides strength for our journey.   If you or your loved one is homebound, in a nursing home, or in the hospital and would like to receive Communion, please contact the Parish Office at 313-884-5554.

Preparation for children to receive their First Eucharist is through the Faith Formation office.  Please contact us at 313-884-7407.
