For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in Him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. – John 6:55-57
Holy Communion is one of the sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church. In Holy Communion, the bread and wine become the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. The Eucharist is spiritual nourishment given to us by God because of His love for us. By eating the Body and drinking the Blood we are uniting ourselves to the person of Christ.
Here at St. William the Abbot, one typically receives First Holy Communion in second grade. For more information, please contact the Director of Faith Formation Laura Walsh: (516) 783-2528 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an adult and have not yet received First Holy Communion, know that we have a process known as RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) to assist you in your faith journey to receive the sacraments. Please contact our RCIA Program at email@example.com.
