ST. John the Baptist adult formation

Small Group Bible Study

Join us this fall for a study on the Eucharist! "The Lamb of God," "The Bread of Life," "The Body and the Blood of Christ"... these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching? Acclaimed author and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre rigorously digs down to the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching. We'll discover firsthand how Christ's Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God's plan for our salvation.
 

OPTIONS FOR THIS STUDY:

- Monday Evenings at 6:30 PM from September 16 — November 18
- Tuesday Mornings at 9:15 AM from September 17 —November 19
- Other: Let us know your availability or form your own group!

Registration Fee: $15.00 (Scholarships Available)
