Proper Reception of Holy Communion Print E-mail


Proper Reception of Holy Communion

Recently it has been observed that after reception of Holy Communion some parishioners walk away without consuming the Body of Christ. This is not acceptable. After receiving the precious body of Jesus Christ, it must be consumed immediately BEFORE walking away. And, it is not permissible for parents to share Holy Communion with their children before their children have made their First Holy Communion. This practice is a great offense against the miraculous precious body of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. We should never forget that the manner in which we receive the Eucharist “ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our Guest” (Catechism, no. 1387).

It’s also necessary to approach Christ’s Precious Body and Blood with reverence: “When receiving Holy Communion, the communicant bows his or her head before the Sacrament as a gesture of reverence and receives the Body of the Lord from the minister” (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 160).]

Pastor's Welcome Print E-mail


As pastor of St. Anthony Mary Claret Catholic Church, I want to express the welcome from all of us to you for choosing to become one of our parish family. We all hope you will always feel at home here and that our worship and other parochial services will fulfill your spiritual needs. 

St. Anthony Claret Parish is rather young and was started because of the immense growth of the city in this area. As you probably have noticed, we have a new permanent church building so we do have the facilities necessary for a growing parish. You may have already heard about the catechesis programs we provide and our parish organizations and ministries. In order to register your children for Catechesis, please call 688-9033. We encourage you to become involved and be a participating member of the parish family.

During these years, we have accomplished a lot, thanks to the generosity of the parishioners. Our stewardship program, "God's Plan for Church Support", is based on the scriptural concept for tithing. I invite you to become a contributing member. Whatever you give is between you and God. But it will help us to continue to grow and provide all the necessary services.  If you would like to contribute using your credit card, you can do so by clicking the button you'll find on this page.

If you are new to the parish, please complete the online registration form as soon as possible, or find a printed one near the entrance to the church building.  Then return it to the parish office or drop it in the collection basket.

I hope we are making you feel welcome at St. Anthony Claret!

Sincerely in Christ,

Reverend Jan P. Klak.
