Eucharist: Food That Satisfies Our Deepest Hunger
Join us Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. EST
Join Tom Quinlan for this two-part mini-retreat that explores the rich beauty of the Eucharist, both sacramentally and liturgically. Tom will draw upon Scripture and stories from his personal journey of life-in-faith to help reveal the intimate and saving power of Jesus in the Eucharist. The goal of this retreat-style experience is two-fold: Invite you into reflection on your own life of journey and communion with God…and practically model for catechetical leaders what can be done in parent First Eucharist prep sessions to foster conversion in them.
A Certificate of Attendance will be offered to all participants.
