During mass we receive Holy Communion to remind us we are one with Christ. As food and drink nurish our bodies, Christ’s body and blood nurish us spiritually. To receive worthily, one must be a state of grace.
First Communion is offered for the second grade Religious Ed. curriculum. Students learn of the Real Presence of Christ – body, blood, soul, and divinity, which is received in the Holy Eucharist.
While they were eating, Jesus took some break, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat, this is My body.” And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins”. -Matthew 26:26-28
