Holy Communion

First-Communion-1

 “I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever” (John 6: 51.) 

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is distributed every day at Mass (8.30 a.m.)  In addition we have an afternoon Mass on Saturday (4 p.m.) and a second Mass on Sunday (11 a.m.)   On Holy Days, we have a second Mass at 7 p.m.  Please consult the parish bulletin for special occasions.

If you or a loved one are homebound or in a Nursing Home and wish to receive Holy Communion, please contact the parish secretary (Lisa) at 773-324-2626. She will arrange for one of our dedicated and experienced Ministers of Care to visit you.

If you are in hospital, please arrange for communion through the local hospital chaplaincy, or contact Martin Duncan at mduncanesq@owc.net

If you would like your child to make their First Holy Communion in May, please bring your child to Sunday School beginning in September the previous year.

Teens and adults who have been Baptized, but have not made their First Communion are asked to contact:  Jennifer Davis at Jennifer@stapostleparish.org or (773) 324-2626 ext. 102
