“THE CHRISTIAN FAITH IS NOT A RELIGION OF THE BOOK.”

Join us in person or virtually by Zoom to explore this theme for 6 Tuesday mornings from September 5th to October 10, 9:30-11am.
This Bible Study explores the biblical origins of the Eucharist to enrich an understanding of the sacrament and deepen an appreciation of the great gift it is. Through texts from the Old Testament, the gospels, and New Testament letters, students will discover that the Eucharist unites the prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of life as an offering in union with Christ. Through meditation on these texts, students will learn to cultivate a eucharistic life of prayer and active commitment in the world.
