In his dialogue with the people at Capernaum, Christ used his miracle of multiplying the loaves of bread as the occasion to describe himself as the Bread of Life: "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. . . Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you" (Jn 6:51, 53). (from USCCB website)

Receiving the Eucharist for the first time is an incredible experience. We desire to walk with you or your child through the experience. If you are a parent who is seeking information on First Communion, please contact our Parish Religious Education Office at prep@stmaryofthemills.org
