The coming together of a community of people to pray in the presence of their Lord and to receive Him physically and spiritually into their lives is the heart of any Catholic parish. In the celebration of the Eucharist, the bread and wine in the hands of the priest become the body and blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Frequent, intentional, and mindful reception of the Eucharist, which St. Thomas Aquinas called "the Sacrament of sacraments," brings the Christian people into direct contact with their God. It is the highest form of prayer in the Church, and truly is an act of communion, that is, a coming together of God and His people, and with one another, our brothers and sisters in Christ.
At the Catholic Community of South Baltimore, daily mass is celebrated Monday through Thursday, while weekend masses are celebrated on Saturday and Sunday. Please check our parish mass schedule for more details.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has published a handout, called "Liturgy and Life", which provides insight into participating in the Liturgy of the Eucharist as well as providing thoughts on how to take the experience of the mass with you into your daily life.
For additional resources on how to learn about and fully live the experience of the Eucharist, please visit the USCCB website.
