The center of our Episcopal liturgy — the center of our lives as Christians — is the celebration of the Eucharist (from the Greek, thanksgiving), also referred to as the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or Mass.
In the Eucharist we hear the inspired words of the Bible, a sermon connecting faith with life, the prayers of the people, and narrative prayer of blessing over the bread and wine. In this whole act of remembrance, we experience the real presence of God.
It’s our tradition at St. Bart’s, to welcome all baptized Christians to receive communion, including children. If you would like to receive a blessing, come forward and cross both arms over your chest. Often the integrity of intention and action leads to faith and holy habit.
