Communion at St. John's
In the Holy Eucharist, or communion, we are gathered together as the Body of Christ and sent out into the world to love and serve Christ in everyone whom we meet. Through the Eucharist, God gives us the spiritual food that we need to sustain us in the wider world.
In the Episcopal Church, we do not have and never have had a single understanding of what happens in communion. We consider it a Mystery, which individuals are free to experience and interpret for themselves. Most Episcopalians believe that Jesus Christ becomes "truly present" in a spiritual sense in the bread and the wine, but most do not believe that the bread and the wine become - or transubstantiate into - the actual body and blood of Jesus Christ.
In the Episcopal Church, all baptized Christians from any denomination or background are welcome to receive communion. Everyone is invited to come forward for either communion or a blessing. If you are not baptized and feel moved or called to receive communion, please do! God knows what is in our hearts and God welcomes everyone to the Eucharistic Feast! Figuring out whether or not you want to be baptized can wait until after the service. For more, visit Belonging.
