Bread Bakers bake the Eucharistic bread for use at Mass. As stated in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, "The meaning of the sign demands that the material for the Eucharistic celebration truly have the appearance of food." By using bread lovingly prepared by the community, the labor of the faithful is indwelling in the bread, as well as the celebration. Bakers typically prepare the bread once per month and the recipe is supplied by the church.
