What Is Mass?
For Catholics, “The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” Through the words of Consecration spoken by the Priest, Catholics believe that our Lord Jesus becomes truly present in the Eucharistic or Holy Communion. The Bread and Wine become Christ’s Body and Blood. Why do we believe this? Because Jesus tells us in John 6:55: “… my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink,”
The Mass is the most important prayer for Catholics, at St Bonaventure’s there are 8 opportunities each week to go to Mass, and receive Jesus in Holy Communion. It won’t cost you anything, but this most profound gift from God is available, whenever you come to Mass. Click to find out about our mass times.
