Our principal service of worship is the celebration of Holy Communion, or the Holy Eucharist, also known as “The Mass.” The service recalls our Lord’s last supper, wherein he took bread, blessed it and declared “this is my body,” and afterwards took a cup of wine, blessed it and declared “this is my blood.” The church believes that Christ’s body and blood are truly present in the bread and wine blessed at communion, and therefore it is shown the utmost respect and reverence. Holy Communion may be received by anyone who has been baptized (regardless of denomination). Communion may be received at the altar rail either standing or kneeling, and gluten-free hosts are available upon request. If you are unable to come forward for communion, please notify an usher and communion will be brought down to you.
