Holy Communion draws us all together at Christ’s table to partake of Christ’s Body and Blood and to remember Christ’s life, death, and resurrection as we await Christ’s coming again.
When we gather for Communion (also known as Holy Eucharist and the Lord’s Supper), we retell the story of Jesus and follow his command to eat bread and drink wine together in remembrance of him. In the Eucharist, we partake of the Body and Blood of Jesus, and we are united with Christ and with one another and made holy.
We are a sacramental church, and celebrating the Eucharist together is the focus of our worship on Sundays. We celebrate the Eucharist every week (as long as we are able to gather in person and we have a priest present). We use a variety of prayers authorized in the Episcopal Church to tell the story of God’s love for us from the creation to the life of Jesus to our future hope.
All who seek to meet Christ are welcome to receive Communion. You may receive both bread and wine, or either element alone.
“We thank you…for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal kingdom.”
The Book of Common Prayer
