POSTPONED:The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

This event is Postponed UNTIL September as a precaution to halt the spread of the Coronavirus.

The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

A Parish Mission

A Pew poll that purported to show that a majority of U.S. Catholics do not believe church teaching about the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist had commentators blaming Communion in the hand, lay Eucharistic ministers, and even the Second Vatican Council.

But sacramental theologians, liturgists and pollsters say the wording of the poll question likely skewed the data, since the results vary significantly from differently phrased surveys on the same topic from the past decade.

Experts agreed the church could do more to educate adult Catholics on this important, but complex, teaching, but also suggested that while not all Catholics may understand the history and nuances of teaching on the Real Presence and transubstantiation, many of them "get it" on a more general level. (The National Catholic Reporter, August 14, 2019).

The bottom line is that Jesus told us that “This is my Body….This is my Blood”. We believe it because Jesus said it is so. As for how we believe it, that’s simple -  it’s called Faith. Faith cannot be analyzed or dissected. It cannot be reduced to a formula. Like love, faith begins where understanding ceases.

Admission is Free
All are Welcome

Following the Mission all are invited to view the Eucharistic Miracles Exhibition
