Decision Point session 8:

Our seventh Decision Point session was entitled "Eucharist and the Church" This session presented one more Old Testament story which foreshadow the Eucharist: the Covenant Sacrifice and Heavenly Banquet on Mount Sinai. After this, the youth were presented with introductions to the four marks of the Church: the Church is ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC and APOSTOLIC.

Please remember that attendance at these sessions is mandatory for all Confirmation candidates. If a candidate misses a class, they will be expected to make up the material by viewing the videos online and working through the reflection/discussion questions in their book.
