The Holy Eucharist

The Holy Eucharist (or Holy Mass) is celebrated daily (see Mass Times for details). 

As the Eucharist is at the heart of our lives, it occupies a unique place as ‘the Sacrament of sacraments’: ‘all the other sacraments are ordered to it as to their end.’ (c.f. Catechism of the Catholic Church 112).

Jesus is really and truly present in the Holy Eucharist and we rejoice in being able to draw life and nourishment from him. He is the Bread of Life come down from heaven and anyone who eats this bread will live for ever. (John 6:51 ff.). For further information please refer to CCC 1322-1405.

All are welcome to our celebration of the Mass. At the weekends there are three Masses. In addition there is a Mass in Italian on Sunday afternoons at 4pm.

Children’s preparation for Holy Communion takes place annually. Application forms are available in the autumn.
