SESSION 2: PRESENCE

April 11 - April 17, 2021

How is Jesus made present in the Eucharist? Where did the words of the Consecration come from? How is our presence made known to God at Mass?
The session will dive into the importance of presence and the significance of both Jesus' presence in the Eucharist and our presence for the sacrificial offering.

  2. How do you honor or remember a loved one who has died?

  3. How does your family preserve traditions, family stories, or possessions? How did you come to learn about these traditions, stories, or possessions and how did you know they were special?
