Eucharist: Discovering the Mass in the Bible - beginning January 15th, Tuesdays at 9am

In this video series, renowned teacher Dr. Brant Pitre will guide us through Scripture, history, and Church teaching to illuminate the wonder and miracle of the Eucharist. Jesus said, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood.” Some say they’re merely symbols of remembrance. Others say they’re really the Body and Blood of Christ, but can’t explain how that’s possible. The Eucharist is the center-point of the Mass – but why? Register with John at jellison@stmichaelcommunity.org or (630) 462-5045. A suggested donation of $25 covers the cost of the workbook and materials. We will meet Tuesdays at 9am in the first floor of the Faith Center.

A new community is forming to learn the chanted liturgy of Sunday evening prayer. Please join us Sunday evenings at 7pm in the Church as we celebrate the beauty, dignity, and sacredness of the chanted vespers service
