What is it about the Mass that makes it so different from other worship services and prayer gatherings? The Church talks about the Real Presence but did Jesus not promise to be with his followers where two or more are gathered in his name?

In this short, three- session study we will wade into the Mystery of Jesus' gift of his very self as food for our souls and transformation for our lives. In the Gospels, Jesus tells his Apostles clearly "Do this." Is it any wonder then that the Church calls this sacrament - the visible sign of an amazing invisible reality - the "source and summit" of the Christian life . Come, let us adore indeed!

PRESENCE has three sections to choose from. You can "flex" across sections during the three weeks but select the one where you'll start in the online registration form.
