Roman Catholic Answer

No. First of all, there is no "Eucharist" in a Protestant church. The protestants themselves do not even believe this, and they no longer have valid apostolic succession or orders so they have no priests to confect the Eucharist. Second, one would be, by receiving their Holy Communion, expressing unity with an heretical sect which does not believe in the truth as received from Jesus Christ so one would be committing a mortal sin.
