At this Table, we remember, we partake of a memorial, and we commune with God. All who have been baptized in Jesus Christ are welcome to come here and participate – but you must come with faith.

All my bones shall say, “LORD, who is like You, delivering the poor from him who is too strong for him, Yes, the Poor and the needy from him who plunders him?”
