Eucharist

The Eucharist is the sacrament from which all others have meaning. In the Eucharist, Christ is most profoundly present in the Church, which gathers to hear the Word of God and to share the nourishment of Christ’s Body with one another.

The Sacrament of First Eucharist (Holy Communion) is made when a child is in the second grade and will be celebrated on April 29, 2017.  The First Eucharist Retreat will be held on April 22, 2017. Preparation for this sacrament has already begun. For more information please call the parish office at (504) 393-2334 or contact Frances Harrison by email at fharrison@standrewparish.net.

If you are a parishioner of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish, who is unable due to health reasons to attend church, please call the rectory in order to have one of our Eucharistic Ministers bring communion to you at your home. Please make sure you give your complete name, address, telephone number, and make sure you state that you want to be added to our Shut-Ins List. Please contact the Parish office at (504) 393-2334.
