Learn how the Old Testament Tabernacle can be used as a blueprint for the Catholic Faith and how Jesus fulfilled it in the New Testament. Part One focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism and more. The cost is $25.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:   Listen to what the Pope John Paul II said: "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship”. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration. Notice how the Holy Father is asking you to be generous with your time. He is not asking for your money but something much more precious – your time. We invite you to come spend time with Jesus. Adorers are Needed. Please contact Stasia for scheduling 386-574-2131.
