First Eucharist

First Eucharist (formerly known as First Communion)

Eucharist Eucharist comes from the Greek eucharistia, meaning thanksgiving. Ever since Pentecost, when the Church, the People of God, began building a church, they were sustained with the spiritual food in times of trialsl and in time of celebration. Eucharist is that food, the real presence of the risen Lord. The Second Vatican Council, in its Constitution on the Church, rightly proclaimed that the eucharistic sacrifice is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” The Eucharist is, for Catholics, …

Anointing of the Sick   Our mission as disciples of Jesus Christ is to do what Jesus did. In reading the Gospels, we learn about Jesus’ concern for the sick. Healing was essential to the mission of the disciples: “He summoned the Twelve and began to send them out two by two . . . They anointed with oil the many who were sick and cured them” (Mark 6:7-13). The early Church continued to be a sacrament of healing: “Are …

The sacrament of reconciliation is offered at Holy Family in our reconciliation room, located in the vestibule area of the church. The reconciliation room allows for either an anonymous setting or a face to face approach. Some people find it comforting to make an appointment with one of the priests for individual reconciliation. In this case, one meets the confessor in his office in the Pastoral Center.

During Advent and Lent, Holy Family Church offers a communal Reconciliation Service. Generally, the service includes the Liturgy of the Word, a reflection on the readings, and an examination of conscience. Priests from nearby parishes assist at these services so that there is a sufficient number to hear individual confessions.
