In the Eucharist, Catholics accept the gift of God giving us the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in the form of bread and wine. It is our belief that Christ is truly present, as a sacrifice to the Father and as nourishment for us on our pilgrim way. (Matthew 26: 26-29; Mark 14: 22-25; Luke 22: 14-20).
Eucharist is available daily at the scheduled Mass times.
Those who are homebound and wish to receive the Eucharist are served by Agape Ministers who will bring communion to their home. Homebound parishioners may contact the parish office at 773-286-7871.
Preparation for First Eucharist is done through Religious Education, Pope Francis Global Academy and Saint Bartholomew School. For preparation information, contact the Religious Education Office.
