OCTOBER 8, 2023

Dear Parishioners

      The Church has dedicated this year and the year 2024 as the year of Eucharist Revival. It is a year in which the church is asking us to renew our faith in the Real Presence in the Eucharist and in the sacrifice of the Mass.

     In line with this we will have Eucharistic Adoration available on Wednesday Evenings at St Theresa from 5:45 to 6:15 pm.  St. Aloysius has Eucharist Adoration on the 1st Thursday each month from 9:30am-4:30pm and there are additional times for Eucharist adoration available at St Aloysius on the fourth Tuesdays of the month from 4:30 to 7:30 pm.  I would encourage everyone to spend some time along in the Presence of the Lord over the next year.

     Beginning in the middle of February I will be offering a class on the Eucharist and how it is central to our faith.  The topics will include the following:

  • How Sacrifice has been and is the central act of religion throughout history

  • How the Eucharist is prefigured throughout the Old Testament from the tree of Life, the Story of Melchizedek, the bread of Presence, and the Passover and many others.

  • The Eucharist in the New Testament including St John’s discourse on the Eucharist.

  • The Last supper and why the Eucharist came on Holy Thursday that is before the Lord’s Sacrifice on the Cross.

  • The two-way flow of grace that comes from the Sacrifice of the Mass.

  • The Eucharist as the Sacrament of Charity that the other sacraments build upon.

  • The Eucharist in the Church Fathers

  • How Luther misunderstood a few things

  • Why not just “spiritual communion”? I Liked COVID because I did not have to get up and go to Church! - What’s missing

  • What does Transubstantiation even mean?

  • The Eucharist as the Sacrament of unity.

  • Adoration-why?

  • Mary and the Eucharist.


And many other topics as well.


   The class will be offered At St Theresa on Wednesday Evenings right after Mass from 7:00 - 8:00pm.

   It will be offered on Monday Nights At St Aloysius from 7:00 - 8:00pm and Tuesday mornings from 9:00 - 10:00am right after the daily Mass.

   It will be the same class offered in each place every week so you can attend any class during the week that works for you.  The exact dates of the class will soon be coming.
