MARIA STEIN, Ohio (January 16, 2023) – Join us this February and March as the Shrine is offering a Bible study devoted to the source and summit of the Christian life, the Eucharist.

“The Eucharist in Scripture explores the biblical theme of meals shared in faithful fellowship and in covenant relationship with God. Old Testament meals and promises provide a foundation for gospel meals with Jesus, culminating in the Last Supper as it is understood throughout the New Testament. Jesus’ bread of life discourse and the early church’s practice of “breaking bread” are also explored.” – Little Rock Scripture Study

This 5-lesson study will run every Tuesday evening starting on February 28th and ending on March 28th. Register online at before February 6th.
