Eucharist

Consecration of the Holy EucharistThe Church teaches that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. In our celebrations of mass, every person present is called to participate fully and actively.  Everyone has a role to play in the celebration, not just the clergy and the Liturgical Ministers.  

In the celebration of the Eucharist, God is made present in 4 ways: first, in the gathering of the parishioners; second, in the person of the Priest-Presider;  in the proclamation of the Word of God in the Liturgy of the Word; and fourthly, in our reception of Holy Communion, the Body and Blood of Christ.  Nourished at the Table of the Word and the Table of the Eucharist, the Newman Centre Community is strengthened to live out our faith in the coming week, in the places we live, study and gather, and in our outreach to the university community, and especially in our service of the poor.

The Newman Centre Parish Community finds its fullest and richest expression in our celebration of the Eucharist - both the Sunday celebrations and the daily celebrations of Mass. Many people participate in our celebrations in a unique way as Liturgical Ministers:  Choir members, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ministers of hospitality, altar servers, and Children’s Liturgy of the Word.
