‘Pilgrim’ Course on ‘The Eucharist’
In this course we will explore the reasons why the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) is celebrated as a memorial of Christ's saving death, what it means, why it stands at the very heart of our Christian worship, and how our participation can be more meaningful for us. Course materials will be provided; a donation of $15 to cover their cost is appreciated but not required. This course will run for 6 Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9pm starting on Oct. 6th. This course is full, however please sign on the waiting list so we can contact you if space becomes available.
