First Eucharist / Holy Communion is the receiving of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of his body and blood.
He who eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, abides in me and I in him. (John 6:57) Children of catechetical age are prepared for this sacrament at St. Paul School or in our parish school of religion.
If someone is homebound or in the hospital, please notify the parish office [(845)268-4464]. Arrangements can be made so that the homebound person is not deprived of receiving the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Each Sunday, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are deputed to bring the Holy Eucharist to the homebound and both Nyack Manor and Tolstoy nursing facilities.
The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered at Nyack Manor every Wednesday at 10:30 am and at Tolstoy at 10:30 am on the Last Friday of each month. Holy Communion is brought by a priest to those confined to their rooms. Please, inform the parish office [(845)268-4464] if a family member of friend has been recently admitted to these places.
