The Bible and The Sacraments
SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
In the Catechism the sacraments are described as “the masterworks of God” in the new and everlasting covenant. More than rituals, they are “‘powers that come forth from the Body of Christ.” This study program from the St. Paul Center with Scott Hahn dives into the mystery of these channels of grace by illuminating their scriptural roots in the Old and New Testaments, and their connection to the rites of the Church. Join us on Sunday mornings from 10:30 to Noon and discover that the sacraments we celebrate are nothing new. God has always dealt with us in a sacramental manner. Finding their institution in Jesus and their origin in salvation history, Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage and Holy Orders are God’s gifts of life and love to his children. There are 11 lessons in this study that will run from October 6 to December 15. Register soon at https://tinyurl.com/SacRegister or call the Faith Formation office (688-0599).
