Holy Eucharist

Christ promised his followers that he would feed them here on earth and welcome them to a banquet in Heaven. He fulfills his promise through the sacrament of the Eucharist by offering His own body and blood to feed the faithful both physically and spiritually.

The Eucharist is the most eminent sacrament, in which Christ himself is contained, offered and received. As children reach 2nd grade or above, we extend them an invitation to celebrate the sacrament of Eucharist. This is done through participation in our parish Religious Education program.

To find out more, please contact our Religious Education office at 860-429-2860.


Saint Philip also venerates the Holy Eucharist in Adoration. From 9 am to 2 pm on Fridays, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for a special form of worship. If you would be interested in volunteering to spend an hour with Our Lord, please contact us or call the parish office.
