The true worshippers in spirit and in truth (day of renewal)

This day is a chance for participants to live out the fullness of the Eucharistic experience, as they are invited to testify to the power of the Eucharist in their own lives.

Young people will be led to understand the relationship between the gift of Jesus’ Eucharistic presence and his sacrifice on the cross out of love for humanity. Father Antoine Thomas of the Community of Saint John will introduce us to the human family as family of faith—the family as the place where our vocation to the consecrated life is awakened.
