The Catholic Table Video Series

About The Catholic Table Video Series

It’s unavoidable. We all must eat. But as Catholics, we know that how we eat matters as much as what we eat. In her book The Catholic Table, award-winning author Emily Stimpson Chapman explains how food is a sign of God’s love and a foretaste of the Eucharist.

Now, in The Catholic Table video series, you’ll discover what the Church teaches about creation, the body, feasting, fasting, the Eucharist—and so much more.
