During the Eucharistic Prayer, the power of the Holy Spirit is invoked to transform these gifts of bread and wine into the body and blood of Jesus. Through the Liturgy of the Eucharist, we declare that we join with the parish community to give giving praise and thanks to God by active participation as we hear God’s word, receive the Body and Blood of God’s Son, and are missioned as God’s People.
- First Holy Communion
Children in the Diocese of Charlotte are able to celebrate their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion during second grade, provided that it is their second consecutive year of faith formation, or they attend a MACS school. All Children attend weekly Sunday classes in Benedict Hall.

All students must enroll in the parish sacramental program, whether enrolled in MACS schools or a parish faith formation program.
- Eucharistic Ministry to the Sick and Homebound
St. Peter Jesuit Parish is fortunate to have a dedicated team of qualified Eucharistic Ministers who visit home-bound parishioners on a short term or long term basis to bring the Eucharist and offer encouragement and friendship. Please contact us if we can be of help. More information
- Eucharistic Ministers
A Minister of Holy Communion is a lay parishioner who assists the priest in administering the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ during Holy Communion at Mass. He or she is called not only to minister the Body and Blood of Christ, but to have and maintain a strong faith, a sense of awe, and an inclusiveness of others as the foundation for their ministry. Open to all who have received the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation. [email protected]
