"What material food produces in our bodily life, Holy Communion wonderfully achieves in our spiritual life. Communion with the flesh of the risen Christ, a flesh "given life and giving life through the Holy Spirit," preserves, increases, and renews the life of grace received at Baptism. This growth in Christian life needs the nourishment of Eucharistic Communion, the bread for our pilgrimage until the moment of death when it will be given to us as viaticum."
The Holy Eucharist is one of the sacraments in the rite of initiation in the Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration, the Mass, is celebrated every day at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish.
First Holy Communion
2nd-grade students in St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School and our Parish of School Religion Program (PSR) prepare and receive First Holy Communion. Older children through the age of 14 are prepared through the RCIC program and adults to participate in the RCIA program. Information in preparation for the Sacrament of the Eucharist for our 2nd-grade students is distributed through the St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School and Parish School of Religion (PSR) programs.
