+  Around the Table: Retelling the Story of the Eucharist through the Eyes of Jesus’ First Followers

  • Description: "In Around the Table, you will begin to better understand the mysteries of the Eucharist in a deeper way through the eyes of Thomas, who was with Jesus as he raised the widow’s son at Nain and Lazarus at Bethany. You will explore the Eucharist as a foretaste of heaven alongside Bartholomew in the upper room and the precious gift of forgiveness that the Eucharist brings with Matthew as he first meets Jesus at Capernaum. You will find courage to share the Good News in the powerful story of Mary Magdalene’s crushing sorrow and exuberant joy at the death and resurrection of Jesus." (Originally aired October 27, 2016)
