The Eucharist

The Eucharist

The Eucharist is the greatest of the Sacraments. It is, as we learn in the Catechism, "the source and summit of Christian spirituality." The Eucharist is central to the Mass, which is our central act of worship, and in it we unite ourselves to Jesus Christ's saving work, and find Him present to us in an immediate and tangible way.

The Eucharist at Our Lady of Tahoe

As the Eucharist is the source and summit of Christianity, Our Lady of Tahoe invites all to join us for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation, as well as our weekday Mass every Wednesday through Friday.

We encourage everyone to join us at Mass regularly, and to invite your friends, family, neighbours, who are all very welcome, especially those who may have fallen away from the practice of the Faith.

Join Us for Communion

Generally Mass will be at 5p Sat; 8a, 10a, 12:15p Sun; 5:30p Wed-Fri; and 9a and 5:30p on Holy Days of Obligation. The schedule varies from time to time, so please see our Regular Mass Schedule, get Directions, and join us for Mass!

To make arrangements for the reception of Holy Communion in hospital or at home, or to request Mass intentions, please contact the office.

From the Catholic Encyclopaedia

Since Christ is present under the appearances of bread and wine in a sacramental way, the Blessed Eucharist is unquestionably a sacrament of the Church. Indeed, in the Eucharist the definition of a Christian sacrament as "an outward sign of an inward grace instituted by Christ" is verified.
