FULLY BOOKED: Spring Weekend - Understanding the Eucharist

  • Monastery of Our Lady of Hyning Lancashire, LA5 9SE United Kingdom (map)

This event is now fully booked. To enquire about the waiting list, please send a message to the organiser using the form below.

Giving thanks to God is at the heart of the three great monotheistic faiths.  For Catholics, this takes the form of an activity that we declare to be 'the centre and summit of the Christian life' and the name we give to this activity is 'the Eucharist.'  The Eucharist is the gathering of the People as a priestly people who through Christ and in the Spirit celebrate the new banquet, giving thanks and praise to the Father.

But what does this mean for our lives? What does it mean for our relationships with other Christians?

Is the way we think about this activity consistent with what we declare in the liturgy and what we want to profess?

We shall explore these issues over the course of the weekend with talks and discussions. The speaker is Professor Tom O’Loughlin, who is an academic and a Catholic priest.  He is the author of The Eucharist - Origins and Contemporary Understanding, Bloomsbury, 2015.


Chair: Mike Campbell
