Grow in devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and your love for the True Presence as we return to Mass—celebrate the great Feast of Corpus Christi with a special event focused on the Real Presence!

From June 10 to June 13, join Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, Mike Aquilina, and Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB, for four days of reflection on Jesus’ Real Presence in the Eucharist.

Corpus Christi celebrates the Real Presence of Jesus’ Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Eucharist, and the Church calls us to remember this holy solemnity now more than ever before, when our devotion to the Eucharist has been tested and strengthened. Go deep into Scripture to discover the beautiful gift of the Eucharist.
