Holy Eucharist
Eucharist means "thanksgiving," and the Eucharist is the "source and summit of the Christian life."
The Paschal mystery of Christ is celebrated in the liturgy of the Mass. The Mass is the principal
sacramental celebration of the Church, established by Jesus at the Last Supper, in which the
mystery of our salvation through participation in the sacrificial death and glorious resurrection of
Christ is renewed and accomplished.

The essential signs of the sacrament are wheat bread and grape wine, on which the blessing of the
Holy Spirit is invoked during the Sacrifice of the Mass, and the Priest pronounces the words of
consecration spoken by Jesus at the Last Supper: "This is my body...This is the cup of my
blood..." The bread and wine, through Transubstantiation, then becomes the Body and Blood,
Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, and we receive the Real Presence of Jesus when we receive
Holy Communion.

Christ is present in the community which has assembled for worship. He is present in the person of
the Priest who presides in his name. He is present in the biblical word which is proclaimed. He is
present in the Eucharist.

We offer the Eucharist to all Baptised Christians, without conditions, who present themselves
and who believe in the Real Presence.
