Eucharist: The Sacrifice We Offer

Date: Saturday 11 June, 2022
Time: 9:30am - 2:30pm
Cost: Free
RSVP: Tuesday 7 June

Join people from all across the Diocese of Wollongong for a Workshop on Saturday 11 June 2022 Xavier Conference Centre Wollongong (38 Harbour St), 9:30am – 2:30pm, presented by Sr Carmel Pilcher RSJ, PhD.

Lunch and Morning Tea provided. An opportunity to make a donation to assist in covering costs will be provided towards the end of the workshop.

At this workshop we will seek to understand what the early church understood by priestly participation in the liturgy. Namely that each of us, together with our sisters and brothers in Christ, bring to the celebration the joys and hopes, grief and anxieties of our week. Ritually we place these on the Eucharistic table along with bread and wine to become the mystery of Christ’s sacrifice. From the communion table we go to continue our priestly role as witnesses of Christ’s love.

This is a great opportunity for formation for anyone who wishes to deepen their appreciation of Eucharist.
