"If we but paused for a moment to consider attentively what takes place in this Sacrament, I am sure that the thought of Christ's love for us would transform the coldness of our hearts into a fire of love and gratitude." - St. Angela of Foligno
The first Sunday of each month we offer Holy Communion to all. As our ritual says: “Christ our Lord invites to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another.” We celebrate open communion-regardless of church affiliation- all are welcome to celebrate communion.
Originating in the Passover meal, Holy Communion had new meaning when Jesus served it on the night before his crucifixion. It is an act of the most holy and intimate sharing, making us one with Jesus Christ and a part of his body, the church. We believe through this common meal - symbolized with the bread and cup - that we experience Christ's presence among us as Spirit, not actual flesh and blood.
