"The Holy Eucharist completes Christian initiation. Those who have been raised to the dignity of the royal priesthood by Baptism and configured more deeply to Christ by Confirmation participate with the whole community in the Lord’s own sacrifice by means of the Eucharist.
At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved Spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet ‘in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us." Catechism of the Catholic Church 1322 & 1323
Holy Communion in the Hospital
The Catholic hospitals in the metro area have Catholic chaplains who visit with the sick, pray, and bring Holy Communion. St. Francis and St. John hospitals also have priest chaplains who minister to the sick daily, including the administration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick when needed. Our parish priests are happy to visit as well; please contact the office with your request.
If you or a family member is hospitalized it is important to contact the parish office as the hospitals do not inform us.
Holy Communion at home or in a Nursing Home
Parishioners from St. Henry will be happy to bring Holy Communion to you or a member of your family who is unable to attend Mass or resides in one of Owasso's nursing homes. Please call the parish office to make arrangements.
