Holy Communion is the sacrament by which Our Lord offers us himself, his own body and blood, that he might live in us and we in him. Through Holy Communion we receive “The forgiveness of our sins, the strengthening of our union with Christ and one another, and the foretaste of the heavenly banquet which is our nourishment in eternal life” (The Book of Common Prayer 861-862).
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Holy Communion at St. Michael’s by-the-Sea. Click here to download the Holy Communion Preparation Booklet.
