When Jesus Christ became flesh and was born of his mother, Mary, he shared so fully in our humanity that it became possible for human beings to share in his divinity. Those who choose to be one with Christ choose to die with him and to be raised to new life in him as he was raised to a new and glorious life on the first Easter morning. Through Jesus Christ we are one people worshipping the one God. It is this togetherness, both human and divine, and its fruits, that we celebrate in the sacrament of holy communion. Like Mary Magdalene outside the empty tomb we come face to face with our teacher who is present in the bread and wine. As with Mary, our meeting with Christ should compel us to rush out into the world to proclaim the good news of Easter, that Jesus Christ is risen indeed.
At Saint Laika’s everyone is welcome to take communion and be in communion, with each other and with God. There are no exceptions. So, come, join us.
If you want to physically partake of communion you will require a small piece of bread and a small amount of drink (preferably made from grapes and containing alcohol).
