Eucharist, Discovering the Mass in the Bible
Registration closes August 31, 2018
Two Meeting Time Options:
Eucharist - DVDs Discovering the Mass in the Bible*5 discs, 10 episodes
The Last Supper. Communion. The Great Feast. Bread and Wine. 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? The answers are here. Renowned teacher Dr. Brant Pitre guides us through Scripture, history, and Church teaching to illuminate the wonder and miracle of the Eucharist. With deep insight, Dr. Pitre gives a fresh perspective for understanding the mystery that is the Eucharist. This 5-DVD set features 10 episodes with over seven hours of video presentation filmed at the studios of the Augustine Institute in Denver, Colorado.

We aid needy parishes in the New Orleans area develop more adequate catechetical programs & obtain religious education materials.

Because of problems with the bathrooms in church, we have found it necessary to contract with a plumber to tunnel and do repairs to our under-slab sewer pipes. We checked and this is not covered by insurance, nor is the building still under warranty. The cost of the repairs is estimated to be $42,000. Because this is well beyond our budget, we will have a series of second collections to help cover this cost. The first two will be June 23-24 and July 21-22.
Please be generous!
