The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The term “Eucharist” originates from the Greek word eucharistia, meaning thanksgiving. In the celebration of the Eucharist, bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and the instrumentality of the priest. The whole Christ is truly present — body, blood, soul, and divinity — under the appearances of bread and wine, the glorified Christ who rose from the dead. This is what the Church means when she speaks of the “Real Presence” of Christ in the Eucharist.
Are you unable to attend Mass because of illness, disability or age? Angel Corps provides caring assistance to parishioners who are unable to attend Mass. We minister to parishioners in hospitals and nursing homes and those who are homebound. Volunteers bring the Eucharist, pray with sick or elderly parishioners, and help with other services as needed. Our Angel Corps volunteers honor the privacy of those they visit.
