Eucharist

Eucharist

Eucharist is the “source and summit” of our faith, the font from which all other sacraments flow.  Catholics believe that in the Eucharist, Jesus Christ is most profoundly present with the Church. In the Eucharist, Jesus Christ fulfills His promise to the Church: 'I am with you always, until the end of the age' (Mt. 28:20)  

The Celebration of the Eucharist (Mass) is the height and center of all the sacraments. It is the heart and soul of Catholic faith. It truly expresses who we are in our relationship with God while forming us into a people destined for eternal life with God.  We gather each Sunday as a parish family to celebrate liturgy.  The Eucharist feeds us with the Word and with the Body and Blood of Christ.  Sunday Mass is the foundation of parish life and weekly attendance is necessary to a healthy and vital relationship with God for the Catholic Christian.  At the Table of the Lord, we share in His Body and Blood and so are called to become what we eat.

Holy Eucharist is celebrated every day at St Xavier Church:
       Sunday Masses are
          Saturday evening vigil at 4:00pm
          Sunday at 7:00am, 9:00am, 10:30am, 12 noon, and 5:00pm
       Weekdays Masses are Monday – Friday at 6:00am and 11:30am and Saturday morning at 7:00am

Children (usually 2nd or 3rd grade) who would like to make First Eucharist attend Religious Education classes on Sunday morning.
