I am the living bread that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live forever;... he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and... abides in me, and I in him. Jn 6:51, 54, 56
"At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet 'in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us'." Catechism of the Catholic Church
Children prepare to receive the Eucharist for the first time through an organized program at a Catholic school, through a Catholic Religious Education (RE) program or the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) program.
For information on these programs please visit read more about First Communion Preparation or contact: Mary Bojarski, Director of Religious Education at 405-366-7676 ext. 102.
Communion to the Homebound
Our intent is to make the Sacraments available to all Catholics who would like to receive, but are unable to attend Sunday Mass due to injury, illness, advanced age, or circumstance. We distribute the Body of Christ to persons who are homebound, hospitalized or in nursing homes/assisted living facilities in Norman who wish to receive it. If you have surgery or cannot come to Mass routinely--even for a few weeks, call the office. Please contact the Parish Office at (405) 366-7676 for more information.
