Real Presence Renewal at St. John

This exercise is a powerful tool designed to strengthen, renew, and reignite your faith in the mystery of the Holy Eucharist. It was created for every Catholic, from the young to the old, from the recent convert to priests and those with advanced degrees in theology. In-person meetings will be held Monday or Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 PM, beginning September 20th, 2021 in the Portico. Please visit realpresencerenewal.org to learn more and to register.
