Bread of Life Discourses

Beginning Sunday, July 29, through the end of August, we will be listening to the Bread of Life Discourses in chapter 6 of John’s gospel.  The teachings of Jesus in this chapter discuss the offering of His body and blood as sacrifice for the world.  Each week on our parish website, we will offer videos, reading materials and links to help enhance your prayerful understanding of John 6 and the Eucharist.
