Bible Study: Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist
"The Lamb of God," "The Bread of Life," "The Body and the Blood of Christ"... these are phrases we know from the Mass. But do we understand what they mean in the greater and deeper context of Scripture and Church teaching?
In this 10-week video-based bible study, we will delve into the biblical roots of the Eucharist, through its foreshadowing in the miraculous events of the Old Testament, the Gospels, and Apostolic teaching.
Join us as we journey from Genesis to Revelation with the Eucharist as our focus, and discover how Christ's Body and Blood are an integral and wondrous part of God's plan for our salvation.
Meetings will be Wednesdays, 7:30-9:00 pm, on Zoom, starting September 22nd.

Monday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings
During this pandemic, our prayer life — among other things — may have been disrupted. We’ve had to find different ways of praying without in-person community to support our faith life. The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina is a good way to help us deal with stress and provide a way to enter into sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time.
The basic idea is to spend time listening deeply and intently to what God might have to say to you through Scripture—almost as if the sacred text were a much-cherished love letter from God. Lectio Divina is like a deep conversation with a best friend. It is not a study method. Background knowledge can be helpful but is not essential. Our real goal is to meet our Lord as we read his Word and allow him to transform our lives to be more like him through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Join us as we meet online every Monday evening, to dive deeper into the upcoming Sunday Mass readings. There is no commitment to join every week, just come whenever you can, spend some time praying through Scripture and sharing with each other.

Consecration to St. Joseph
In this year dedicated to St. Joseph all Christians are invited to make a total consecration to St. Joseph. A consecration to St. Joseph is a formal act of filial entrustment to him as a spiritual father so that he can take care of your spiritual well-being and lead you to God. The person who consecrates himself or herself to St. Joseph wants to be close to him as a spiritual father, to the point of resembling him in virtue and holiness.
The preparation for consecration takes 33 days. The next timeframe selected by the ESM to offer this preparation is
September 30 - November 1 (Ending on the Solemnity of All Saints)
Please choose any of the dates below and join virtual group preparation meetings (Wednesdays 20:00-21:00 h):
29 September, 13 October
