Jesus and the Eucharist

This 7 session series will cover:

1. What’s Our Story? The Bible is the story of God’s love for us. He created us out of love, redeemed us by his love and transforms us in his love.
2. Who is Jesus? Jesus is both God and man, therefore he reveals who God is in relation to us. He asks each of us, “Who do you say that I am?”
3. Am I Saved? Salvation is a gift of God through Jesus Christ that requires our “yes”.
4. Why a Church? Jesus gave us a living, dynamic church where we encounter him personally and allow ourselves to be transformed into his likeness.
5. God is With Us God’s presence in the Old Testament foreshadows the gift of the Eucharist.
6. The Story of the Eucharist From Genesis to the present day, this session explores how the Cross is the new Tree of Life, and the Eucharist, its fruit.
7. Bread for the Journey The Eucharist sustains us; we are sent forth to share what we have received.

This Bible study starts on Monday 8 January 2024, 6:15pm in the Faith Formation Office, $5.00 per person. To plan for these sessions, kindly register by calling the Faith Formation Office, (267) 803-0774.

Eucharistic Revival Holy Hour

The Parish-focused second year of the Eucharistic Revival officially began on 11 June 2023. During this year of the Eucharistic Revival, one of our goals at Saint John Bosco Parish is to promote and encourage increasing Eucharistic Devotion.

You are invited to join us for a Holy Hour at 10:00am in our Adoration Chapel on 7 February 2024, 3 April 2024 and 5 June 2024.

Treat yourself to some quiet time in prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. The Holy Hour provides each person an opportunity to bring before Jesus, in the Blessed Sacrament, the cares, concerns, joys, sorrows and thanksgivings that we all experience each day. Come join us as we pray together, as the Apostles did, in the presence of Jesus.

Come as a family or as an individual as all are most welcome.
