ONGOING – EUCHARISTIC REVIVAL VIRTUAL CATHOLIC CONFERENCE
Without having to go anywhere, you can have access to great free talks about Jesus’ presence in the Eucharist that you can play whenever you want. In addition, there are some live talks, too. Imagine for a moment what it could mean for our Church, our families, and the world if we realized that Jesus is present and more powerful than the storm around us. Among the long list of speakers, you may recognize some of them, such as Dr. Gregory Popcak who hosts More2Life on Catholic Spirit Radio. However, the conference is NOT affiliated with Catholic Spirit Radio. It's not too late. Sign up anytime. You'll continue to have access until September 2025.
