Have you reached a plateau in your faith-life? It may be time to reconnect more deeply with Jesus in the Eucharist.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€š
Our love for Jesus and the fullness of life that comes from Jesus, begins and ends in the Eucharist. It is Jesus who says,
"I am the living bread that came down from heaven. The one who eats this bread will live forever." What does this mean? How can I access more fully this mystery which gives joy and meaning to my life as an Orthodox person? Come learn why a life re-dedicated to Jesus in the Eucharist can dissolve obstacles to spiritual growth, and renew you and your family's prayer life. Divine LIturgy will be celebrated Sunday at 10:30am. St. Helena's Camp
