First Communion Preparation
EUCHARIST: THE SOURCE AND SUMMIT
"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers.... Day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they partook of food with glad and generous hearts ." (Acts 2:42,46)
From the earliest days the community has gathered around the Eucharistic table. "Initiated into the Christian mystery by Baptism and Confirmation, Christians are fully joined to the Body of Christ in the Eucharist (National Catechetical Directory , # 120).
The Eucharist is of such importance in our lives as faithful people that the Second Vatican Council stated that the Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life (Lumen Gentium, 11)."
