LEWISTON – Holy Family Catholic Church, 607 Sabattus St., is announcing its most recent offering in its ongoing series of Adult Faith Formation and Education Program classes.

Beginning Thursday, Feb. 10, Holy Family will host “Eucharist: Source and Summit of Life and Mission of the Church.” The six-week course will discuss the history, celebration and significance of the Eucharist – including the various parts of the Mass and Eucharistic devotions – in the life and mission of the church.

Each session will be facilitated by one member of the adult education team, which consists of clergy, the Rev. Andrew Dubois, pastor of Holy Family Parish; the Rev. Michael Seavey, pastor of St. Joseph Parish; the Rev. Kevin Martin, assistant pastor of the Auburn Catholic Community, and laity, Marie Beaulieu, director of Faith Formation at Holy Family Parish; and Ruth Oakley, director of Faith Formation at Holy Cross Parish.

The course is being offered in response to Pope John Paul II having declared this the “Year of the Eucharist.” The Pope is asking all Catholics to deepen their relationship to Jesus Christ by how they celebrate, learn about, reflect on and share in the sacrament of the Eucharist (also referred to as Holy Communion).

To accommodate as many people as possible, each session will be offered twice, from 2 to 3 p.m. Thursdays and 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays. The six sessions will be held on Feb. 10, 17, 24, March 3, 10 and 17. All classes will be held in the Rectory Meeting Room (entrance near the garage doors).

The registration fee is $10, which covers the cost of the workbook and supplies.

To register for either session, or for more information, call Marie Beaulieu at 783-7330, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
