Holy Communion

At the center of any genuine Christian living is the mystery of Christ’s sacrificial Death and Resurrection. The individual is immersed in the mystery of mercy by insertion into the saving sacrifice of Christ through the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. In the days leading up to Easter and through Pentecost, every Catholic is encouraged to renew in mind, heart and soul the grace of Baptismal innocence and the strength of Spirit through a renewal of Confirmation. 26aHTHolyCommunion2W

But the Eucharist is a “daily” necessity, just as the Lord has taught us to pray “give us this day our daily bread.” Because the Eucharistic share in the sacrifice of Christ is so basic to our lives of discipleship, the Church has celebrated Mass, the Eucharistic Sacrifice, daily for practically fifteen hundred years. A hundred years ago, St. Pius X strongly encouraged “daily communion.” Why not join us every day?

Our community gathers for daily Mass Monday through Friday at 7:00 a.m., 8:00 a.m., and 12:05 p.m. and on Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. Sunday Mass is celebrated at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m., with a Vigil Mass at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday evenings.

Note: Our clergy or our lay ministers of care will happily bring Holy Communion to any who are sick or otherwise restricted to their home. Please contact the rectory at 314-373-8202 to make arrangements for home visits.

Preparation of our Catholic children’s First Communion is normally part of our second grade religious formation. Special arrangements can be made for children attending other schools. Please contact the rectory for further information.
