Bishop¬†Barron offers inspiring insights into the mystery of Christ's presence in our lives and the centrality of the Eucharist as an important part of that presence.
So many believers do not understand the Eucharist, which Vatican II said is the ‚Äúsource and summit of the Christian life.‚Äù This fresh look at the Eucharist brings to light its reality as¬†sacred meal, the¬†sacrifice¬†necessary for communion with God, and the¬†real presence¬†of Christ.¬†
This Leader's Kit includes everything you need to host a¬†Eucharist study program. Please note that you will need to purchase the Study Guides separately. Bulk discounts of 15% are included for¬†quantities of 20 or more.¬†¬†
The Leader Guide¬†includes extensive commentary on the theological content of each episode of Bishop Barron's¬†Eucharist¬†film series, plus a variety of questions and their suggested responses. The ‚ÄúQuestions for Understanding‚Äù incorporate references from Scripture and the¬†Catechism of the Catholic Church¬†to build upon topics featured in the series. The ‚ÄúQuestions for Application‚Äù assist in reflecting on the ways in which¬†Bishop¬†Barron‚Äôs message is relevant to our lives and experiences.
The¬†Leader‚Äôs Guide¬†includes a Facilitator‚Äôs Guide, all¬†four lessons¬†that are in the participant‚Äôs¬†Study Guide, and an Answer Key for the Questions for Understanding.¬† The Facilitator‚Äôs Guide explains in detail how to plan, promote, and present the study. All study coordinators or group facilitators can also register for free¬†training webinars.¬†¬†
For group study, each session should include video viewing and group discussion of¬†Study Guide¬†questions. Participants are to read the commentary in the study guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be accomplished either before or after viewing the video.
For group study, you can present the program in six¬† 90-minute sessions. Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.¬† Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.¬†
Each section provides ‚ÄúQuestions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the¬†Catechism of the Catholic Church, and ‚ÄúQuestions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.

Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and “Questions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.
For group study, you can present the program in six 90-minute sessions. Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions. Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.
