Koinonia
Koinonia

Koinonia – is the Greek word for communion, the unity between individuals fostered and celebrated in common worship.  Acts 2:42 tells us that the early Christians devoted themselves to “koinonia, the breaking of the bread, and prayer.”

It may be surprising to find that the deepest roots of our understanding of the word “communion” is therefore, not so much the act of receiving the Body and Blood of Christ in the form of bread and wine, but rather, the act of gathering together and forming a worshipping community.

Our liturgical assembly (at the Eucharist) is a dynamic event, a process, which begins with the gathering of those who are called by God.  Christ himself is present in them, and so, the assembly of the community itself is the fundamental sacramental symbol.  The assembly is the subject and the bearer of the liturgical action, for “liturgical services are not private functions, but are celebrations of the Church, which is the ‘sacrament of unity,’ namely, a holy people united and organized under their bishops.” Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, #26.

We have an exceptional community here at Holy Trinity, one that reaches out to include newcomers and to aid those in need, that awareness can only come from a very real sense of the presence of Christ among the people; the sense of a truly “holy family.”  (December 28,2003)
