Summer Seminar at NDS

“Eucharistic Foundations of Priestly Life and Ministry” is a three week retreat-seminar in which 25 seminarians are participating in reflecting on how in times of crisis that the Holy Eucharist, Mass, devotion to the Eucharist, and spiritual communion are fundamental and foundational aspects of the life of the Church. There can be no Church without the Eucharist! Participants are reading closely the last encyclical by Saint John Paul II (Ecclesia de Eucharistia), the first encyclical by Pope Francis (Lumen Fidei), and the encyclical of Pope Benedict XVI (Sacramentum Caritatis).
