Eucharist/Holy Communion

Eucharist, sometimes called Holy Communion, completes Christian initiation. Through the Eucharist, which means “thanksgiving,” we participate with the worshiping community in the sacrifice of Jesus. The Eucharist commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus invited his disciples to “Take and eat, this is my Body” and “Take and drink, this is my Blood.”

In the Mass, the celebration of the Eucharist, we who are the Church, are united to Jesus and to one another through the gift of his Body and Blood.

As in the early church, some of the consecrated bread is reserved to bring to our sick and homebound to that they, too, may share in this sacrament.

Parents with children who have never received the Eucharist, and are interested in preparing them to receive the sacrament should contact the Religious Education office at 631.261-1306 for enrollment in the Religious Education Program.

Baptized adults who have never received the Eucharist, and who are interested in preparing for this sacrament, should contact Judy Corbellini at rcia@saintanthonyofpadua.org for further information.

Anyone who cannot attend Mass due to illness or age may receive Communion at home. Please call the Parish Office to make arrangements at 631-261-1077.
