Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the "source and summit" of the Christian life. "Presence" explores the truth and beauty of Christ's real presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.

Beginning on Wednesday, January 17th we will gather for three consecutive weeks to study "Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist" on FORMED to help grow in our understanding and appreciation of the Eucharist. Each gathering will include prayer, watching the teaching video and group discussion. 

Water, coffee and tea will be provided at each session. Feel free to bring a snack to share!
