The Eucharist has the great power possible to move the family to love and serve the God with brotherhood and unity and serve the Lord, to bring the good news of Jesus to all encountered. The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament of brotherhood which reconciles us to God in one brotherhood with unity among us. The Eucharist provides the grace to restore unity among all who members of Body of Christ.

He said when parishioners’ are prepared to participate in Holy Eucharistic Mass and receive Jesus in Communion; they are being formed into holy temples-sanctuaries of God. The Eucharist as a Sacrament of Presence will encourage families in brother to reach out to others and to share this Jesus whom they have received.

Eucharist is the unifying bond that brings us together again and again in the task of living together with Jesus Christ. The celebration of Eucharist begins with an acknowledgment that God is present where two or more are united with brothers and sisters in his name and that we stand before Him in His presence. The Eucharist demonstrates its efficacy in the fruits of a new life in the world, in the fruits of holiness and becoming more God like, that is, in the fruits of eternal life.
