Holy meal of bread and wine, also called the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper.
Jesus instituted this at the Last Supper. The bread and the cup of wine were shared by the disciples. Jesus broke the bread and said, "This is my body which is broken for you." The cup of wine was "the New Testament in my blood which is shed for you." Following the instructions of I Corinthians chapter 11, most Christians share in the bread and wine of the Holy Communion service on a regular basis, to remember the death of Jesus. It is also called The Eucharist, the Breaking of Bread, the Lord's Supper and it also forms the central part of the Roman Catholic Mass. In churches like the Church of England and Roman Catholic Church, it is regarded as a sacrament
(HO·ly com·MUN·ion). A contemporary Christian rite during which communicants receive consecrated bread and wine consumed as memorials of Jesus Christ's death, or as symbolic of the realization of a spiritual union between Jesus Christ and communicant, or as the body and blood of Christ. The rite arises out of the Christian Passover rite of the ancient Church.
Another name for the Eucharist.
the act of participating in the celebration of the Eucharist; "the governor took Communion with the rest of the congregation"

the central act of Christian worship: thanksgiving; the receiving of the consecrated bread and wine as in Eucharist

Holy Communion, also called the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper, is our principle worship service. In it, we celebrate Jesus' victory over death. In it, Christ invites the gathered community to become one with him and with God, secure in God's love. Our response is to leave our seats and come forward to the altar in thanksgiving to partake of Christ's body and blood as symbolized in bread and wine.
The second part of the Holy Eucharist, following the Word of God and beginning with the Offertory (see BCP, 333ff., 36]ff.). This term may also refer to the whole service in the same way as Mass, Lord's Supper, Holy Eucharist, or Divine Liturgy.
the sacrament instituted by our Savior on the night he was betrayed in which he gives us his very body and blood together with bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins.
