 "How to Become A Catholic" by Catholic Answers


"This is my body, which will be given for you; do this in memory of me." And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you."

~Luke 22:19b-20

Christ is present to us in our celebration of the Eucharist, in the Word, the church community, and in the Precious Body and Sacred Blood. The Catechism of the Catholic church teaches that the Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life, both a meal and a sacrifice.

At Mary, Seat of Wisdom, the Eucharist is celebrated and shared among the community. In liturgy, the faithful participate in the celebration of the Eucharist.

Ministers of Care prayerfully bring the Eucharist to the sick and home--bound. Children preparing for the Eucharist are welcomed by the parish family into a period of preparation to receive their First Holy Communion.

Sacrament preparation is coordinated through the Religious Enrichment Center for students attending both the parish school and the Religious Education program.

Adults seeking membership in the church, or to receive Eucharistic preparation should inquire about the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program.
