"Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you; he who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day." John 6:53-54
MASS TIMES | Saturday: 4:30p | Sunday: 10:30a | M-W-F: 8:15a
As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. Come celebrate it with us:
Saturday: 4:30p | Sunday: 10:30a | M-W-F: 8:15a
The Mass is at the same time, and inseparably, the sacrificial memorial in which the sacrifice of the cross is perpetuated and the sacred banquet of communion with the Lord's body and blood. But the celebration of the Eucharistic sacrifice is wholly directed toward the intimate union of the faithful with Christ through communion. To receive communion is to receive Christ himself who has offered himself for us. (CCC 1382)
By the consecration the transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ is brought about. Under the consecrated species of bread and wine Christ himself, living and glorious, is present in a true, real, and substantial manner: his Body and his Blood, with his soul and his divinity. (CCC 1413)
First Holy Communion
The Diocese of Cleveland requires all parishes to provide a Sacrament preparation process separate from the Family Parish School of Religion Program and the Catholic School Program.
We are pleased to offer a preparation program that involves families as they prepare for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion with their child. Families who are parishioners of Saint James Parish and Saint Clement Parish gather for parent meetings and intergenerational activities for the family to grow in their faith.
First Holy Communion preparation begins in early September with preparation for First Reconciliation. First Holy Communion is celebrated in May.
