What is Holy Communion?

Preparing_for_Communion

 

This sacrament is sometimes called “The Lord’s Supper” or “The Eucharist”. All of the baptized are welcome to come forward to receive bread and wine/grape juice. Part of the liturgy of Holy Communion includes the Biblical words of Jesus: “Do this in remembrance of me.” We understand this to mean that we come to the table as a “dis-membered” people, and at the table we are “remembered” as Christ’s body for the sake of the world. The age of first communion is determined in conversation between the parents and the pastor.
