Eucharist

Eucharist comes from the Greek noun εὐχαριστία (eucharistia) meaning thanksgiving.  The sacrament of the Eucharist is at the heart of our faith; it is what gathers the community to celebrate on Sunday.  It is a participation in the sacrifice of Jesus and the memorial of the Last Supper.  The Eucharist is the presence of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ who feeds our soul, our heart, our mind and our body.
