The Real Presence Project: Courageous Faith in the Face of Crisis

Saturday, October 26, 2019

Only 30 percent of Catholics believe that Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist, according to a recent Pew Research poll. And even more troubling, the majority of Catholics who believe that the Eucharist is only a symbol mistakenly believe that this is Church teaching.

How can we help other Catholics encounter the Eucharist and rekindle love for the Blessed Sacrament?

Join Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, and Kimberly Hahn in Atlanta on October 26 for a special morning of Scripture study focused on these very questions. 

The speakers will address the crisis of faith we're facing in the Church today, and how the laity and the priesthood can help spread devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. Learn about the Eucharist as the source and summit of Christian life, its fulfillment of the Old Testament promises, and its personal affect on our lives.

Event Schedule:

9:00 a.m. – "Raising Godly Children in an Un-Godly World" by Kimberly Hahn
10:00 a.m. – "'Mass' Conversion: How I 'Discovered' the Eucharist in Scripture and the Church" by John Bergsma
11:00 a.m. – "When the Vows Break" by Scott Hahn
