Looking for ways to celebrate the Year of The Eucharist? Then why not visit the Catholic Truth Society’s (CTS) website here – they’ve compiled a special page dedicated to the Eucharist, including ‘How To Pray before the Blessed Sacrament’ and ‘Is Jesus Really present in the Eucharist?’ Worth a visit.
And watch out for details in the parish newsletters for events happening in our Pastoral Area over the next 12 months to celebrate the Year of the Eucharist.
