You experience a miracle every time you go to Mass! In "The Miracle of the Eucharist," we will explore the miraculous real presence of Christ in the Eucharist and what it means for the Church and the world. This class is part of LANE's response to the National Eucharistic Revival called for by the U.S. bishops.

"The Miracle of the Eucharist” will be taught by Greg Smith, Dean of LANE, Cory Lakatos, LANE Director of Communications, and Sharon Amaya of the Mary Our Mother Foundation. This class is connected with Eucharistic Miracles of the World, an exhibit coming to Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Holland, MI on October 6-9. All sessions will be taught live at Our Lady of the Lake and streamed online.
