EUCHARIST STUDY PROGRAM You are invited to join a guided four part study program on the Eucharist developed by Rev. Robert Barron. The program explores Eucharist as Sacred Banquet, as Sacrifice, and examines the Real Presence in the Eucharist. Is the mass a little too routine? Do you want more out of it? We will consider among other ideas: How does Jesus use banquet and how it is connected to the Mass? Are the communion wafer and wine mere symbols or something more? Join us on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m., October 23, November 6 and 20. Light snacks and social 6:30—7 p.m., Program 7 –8 p.m. There is no cost, nothing to buy, no preparation, please call 438-7115 evenings and weekends to register. The program is designed for teens and adults of all ages. Parents are welcome to bring their younger children.
