Did you know that he Church in the United States is preparing for the National Eucharistic revival? Register today for a dive deep into the most Sacramental Gospel, and let Saint John show us how the Eucharist is at the heart of the ministry of Jesus. This course will help you better see the Reality of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist!
The United States is currently preparing for the National Eucharistic Revival. One of the best ways we can prepare is to start with our own hearts. Saint John is the most Sacramental of all the Gospels, and this class will journey through the Gospel, taking into account the culture and context in which it was written, in order to see how it puts forth the truth of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Students will also learn how to explain and defend these truths, but the focus of this class is getting to know Jesus himself better through the words of Saint John, and fostering a deeper relationship with Him through the Eucharist.
