Annunciation of the Lord

First Communion

Background

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Church's life.  Eucharist means, "giving thanks".  The Holy Mass is an encounter with the love and goodness of God. The Mass is our celebration of forgiveness, thankfulness, and love. It is our time to experience and share in community prayer.  We pray for others who are living and deceased, and they pray for us.  It is our time to be in a relationship with God as a community.
