Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, our First Communion celebration will be a private service for immediate family members only (those living in the same household). Grandparents and other special family members may watch it live streamed on the South Gibson Catholic Facebook page.
Please contact Becky Mann, Sacramental Coordinator at email@example.com or call the parish office at (812) 768-6457.
What is Communion?
The Holy Eucharist or Holy Communion is a true sacrament, instituted by Christ. Christ is present in the Holy Eucharist. It is therefore to be honored and adored. During the Mass, the bread and wine are transubstantiated into the flesh and blood of Christ so that only the appearance of bread and wine remains. The whole Christ is present and is received by the communicant.
