BIBLE STUDY/FAITH SHARING: “EUCHARIST”

The next six sessions of Bible Study/Faith Sharing will focus on a single subject: The biblical foundations for the Church’s celebration of the Eucharist. You are invited to explore the Biblical foundations of the Eucharist. Through this exploration, you can enrich your understanding of this sacrament and deepen your appreciation of the great gift it is. Through texts from the Old Testament, the Apostles, and New Testament letters, you can discover that the Eucharist unites the prayers, works, joys and sufferings of our lives as an offering in union with Christ. Through meditation on these texts, you can learn to cultivate a Eucharistic life of prayer and active commitment in the world. Where: Blessed Sacrament Parish Hall

The six dates: (Tuesdays, 1:30 PM)
1. September 10
2. September 17
3. October 1
4. October 15
5. October 29
All are invited.
