The Sacrament of Eucharist (Holy Communion) is the second sacraments of initiation that make a person a full member of the Catholic Church. (The other two are Baptism and Confirmation.) The Eucharist is the heart of the church and is the central expression of our faith. We Catholics believe that in the Eucharist, bread and wine are changed by God into the Body and Blood of Christ. Following Jesus’ instruction at the Last Supper to "do this in memory of Me. " Catholics gather together, weekly, around the altar to be nourished and strengthened with God’s Word and with the Body and Blood of Christ. Immaculate Conception provides preparation for children and adults who would like to share Holy Communion for the first time. All candidates must have received their First Reconciliation prior to making their First Communion. First Holy Communion is celebrated in the spring.
