Eucharist

Eucharist may be received at every Mass and at the Good Friday service. Please refer to the weekly bulletin for daily and weekend Mass times and Masses for Holy Days. Schedules for additional Masses during the season of Lent or other special celebrations appear in the bulletin as well.

Children in the second grade spend much of the year preparing for their reception of First Confession and First Communion. First Confession is in the winter and First Communion is made in the spring. Logistics for the ceremonies are handled through the Faith Formation program and John F. Kennedy Catholic School. Sacrament preparation begins in the first grade and children must have two full years of catechetical preparation. See the Faith Formation calendar for current dates and meetings.

Eucharistic Adoration

On the first Friday of each month, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament offers parishioners the opportunity to pray silently in the presence of Jesus for the needs of our family, friends and parish. Adoration begins after the 8:00 AM morning Mass and continues until evening.

Eucharist for the Homebound

Holy Communion may be received on a weekly, or as-needed basis, at the home of any parishioner who is unable to attend Mass because of age, illness or infirmity. Please contact the parish office by Friday for service on the weekend (391-4245).
