Church of St. Thomas the Apostle by Tom Socha | Community
On Wednesday evenings during the holy season of Lent at 6:00 p.m. at St. Thomas Church in Elkland, we will walk the road to Calvary with Jesus, stopping at the 14 stops to contemplate his pain and crucifixion that he endured for us.
After the stations, we will meet in St. Thomas Hall, 6:30-7:30 p.m., to explore the Mystery of the Eucharist, the pinnacle of our worship as Catholic Christians.
The people at the Institut des Augustins have designed a video program to help us discover how God is truly present to us and invites us to enter into an intimate union with him in the Eucharist. We will examine the effects of the sacrament and its placement in the Mass, the scriptural foundation of the sacrament, and discover the beauty of Holy Communion and the transforming power of the grace God offers us in this sacrament.
