in Catechesis

The Divine Liturgy: Examine Himself

Part of the Liturgy: Examine Himself

Summary: Holy Communion is a sacred event, and there are proper habits to develop in receiving it. The best way to prepare is to believe the words “given and shed for the forgiveness of your sins.” Several habits help get us in a frame of mind in which we hear and believe such words. Such habits include praying, fasting, meditating on Psalms, or singing a hymn.

Join us each week after Divine Service (~10:30am) for coffee, treats, and a study of a part of the Liturgy. Join us as you are able. Children and adults welcome alike. No advance preparation is required.

We gather regularly for instruction in the Word of God, not simply to learn knowledge about God, but that our faith in Jesus Christ might be strengthened, and that we might live by that faith in our lives. We call this kind of teaching “catechesis.” Receiving our Lord’s teaching from the Holy Scriptures is a way of life for us, young and old alike, from the cradle to the grave. Our Lord is with us wherever His Word is faithfully taught and received.
