Deacon John will continue our Series of Parish Eucharistic Experiences on this Thursday, December 1 at 7:00 pm in Old Church Hall (note location change for this week only).
Together, we intend to build a Eucharistic Culture in our families and parish. All are welcome!
A Note From Deacon John
My Sisters and Brothers in Faith,
The Eucharist, the living person of Christ, changes lives!
While I have always been a “practicing Catholic,” my life was not centered on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ until I embraced His real presence, His Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist. This reality enables all of us through the Holy Spirit to actually participate in the Divine and eternal life of Christ, an eternal life of love, peace, and abundant joy. In this way, the following quote of Saint Pope John Paul II now resonates in my heart: “The Eucharist is the secret of my day. It gives strength and meaning to all my activities of service to the Church....”
I am sharing this part of my ongoing conversion with you, not only to encourage you to reflect on your personal relationship with Christ and allow Him to change your life through the Eucharist, but to invite you to participate in a parish-wide experience (the Eucharistic Revival at OLL) to build a Eucharistic Culture in your family and our community.
This Culture envisions strengthening your personal union with Christ and one another through the presence of Christ in Holy Communion and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Our initial effort begins Thursday, October 6, from 7 to 9 pm in Community Hall (unless otherwise noted). During our time together, we intend to encounter Christ through a deeper understanding of the meaning of the Eucharist. Join in our Eucharistic revival!
