Summer Bible Institute

For a week in June we will travel through the five regions of the Archdiocese to rediscover Eucharist in its Scriptural foundations.

The week begins in San Pedro with a church tour. Fr. Juan Ochoa will explain how everything about the church building tells the Biblical story of salvation that culminates in Eucharist.

The next evening we are in Our Lady of Angels Region. Fr. Felix Just, S.J. will open up Eucharist in its Biblical foundations.

In San Gabriel the following evening, Fr. Parker Sandoval will show us Eucharist as the center of the Mass.

Then in San Fernando, Dr. Stuart Squires will teach us about Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist through Scripture and Sacred Tradition.

We take a day to sit and reflect as we would after communion; then we travel to the Santa Barbara region with Bobby Vidal to be sent forth to live our Eucharistic Charisms.

All are welcome: young and old and everyone in between.

No registration necessary, no fee to participate. Donations to the host parishes are encouraged and gratefully accepted!
