The Full Story
On the first Sunday in October millions of Christians around the globe celebrate World Communion Sunday to affirm their unity in Christ and ecumenical cooperation and how each congregation is interconnected one with another through a global community of faith.
It focuses on an observance of the Eucharist as we mark the universal practice of breaking bread with one another and remember the Last Supper and Christ’s sacrifice.
Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember Christ as the Head of the Church. On this day, we remember we are part of the whole body of believers worldwide.
Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, in a storefront, or in Harmonie Church in the forest, Christians celebrate communion with the wider community of faith.
