The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." At the Last Supper, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. He did this in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, to entrust us with a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.'"
At St. Pius X, First Holy Communion, or First Eucharist, is offered to children who have been registered and active in our parish for at least one year with at least one year of religious education prior to sacramental preparation. Families new to the parish may provide a letter of good standing from their previous pastor showing prior religious education.
Classes begin in August and First Eucharist is celebrated in May. For more information, contact Arlene Hausher or call 918-622-4488.
