Parish Life: Special Events
Lenten Adult Faith Formation Series: “On the night before he died for us, Our Lord Jesus Christ took bread.”
In Lent we prepare to remember Christ’s self-offering, in the Eucharist and on the cross. From the very first Christians, the Eucharist has been central to our faith. But what are we doing when we celebrate the Eucharist? Re-enacting Christ’s sacrifice? Simply remembering Christ’s self-offering? Is Christ present? How? Literally in the bread and wine? In spirit? How should the Eucharist shape us? Join us for a Lenten series where we study the Eucharist: its origins, what it means, and why we do it. Wednesdays, 7:15 pm – February 17 and 24, March 2, 9, and 16.
Feb. 17 – The Eucharist in the Bible and the early Church
Feb 24 – Theologies of the Eucharist – Real Presence, Sacrifice, Transubstantiation
Mar 2 – Theologies of the Eucharist at the Reformation – Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Cranmer
