This is my body…  This is my blood…

The Mass is the sacrament in which the people of God gather around God’s table, the Altar, to celebrate his real and true presence with us and his ministry amongst and through us. The Mass is sometimes referred to as the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or the Eucharist.

To speak of the Lord’s Supper is to remember the Last Supper before Christ’s crucifixion: to remember that when we gather at the Lord’s table we receive the sacrifice of Christ, Christ’s gift to us of himself, given to make us whole.

To speak of Holy Communion is to focus on how we are invited into (comm)unity with Christ and with each other: how we are called to be the body of Christ, not just to partake of it.

To speak of the Eucharist is to express our gratitude and joy at God’s gifts to us in creation and salvation.

To speak of the Mass, from the Latin mitto, to send, is to honour our call to mission, as God sends us out, fed and sustained by Christ, to transform his world.

At Holy Innocents, the Mass is the most important thing we do every day. The Mass is the most important part of our common life together as Christians and we encourage all to come to Mass each day of the week.
