The Bible and The Sacraments

7:00-8:30 p.m.

Activities Room

This Fall’s study isThe Bible and the Sacraments. This eleven-lesson series explores the sacraments of the Catholic Church, illuminating these “‘masterworks of God’ in the new and everlasting covenant” (CCC 1116).  The Bible and the Sacraments is unlike any other study on the sacraments. Certainly it looks at the basic teaching of the Church as to their meaning and origin. But it goes further. It investigates the deeper mystery of the sacraments as illuminated by Sacred Scripture.  Examining the rich relationship between the Old and New Testaments, it reveals the sacraments as more than mere earthly rituals. They are incredible “powers that come forth from the Body of Christ” (CCC 1116).
