As many of us know, in a recent pew study there was an alarmingly high percentage of Catholics that do not believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. In this workshop we will explore the beauty of this reality and how we can effective communicate it to our students. Participants will hear engaging presentations and explore practical strategies to implement in the classroom.
