The Eucharist: Table of Sacrifice, Nourishmen – Living the Catholic Way of Life

Northwest Side Multi-Parish Mission – Prayer, Preaching, Sacraments and Hospitality for all Ages – Presented by Dr. Gerry Galipea

In baptism, we are re-fashioned into the image of Christ and are joined together as a community of believers.  Baptism happens only once.  The Eucharist become our weekly connecting link with Christ and with the rest of the Christian community.  What does it mean to be joined to Christ's sacrifice?  We know that the Eucharist is a source of nourishment - why do we need this sustenance and nourishment?  In a war-torn world, gripped by fear, terrorism, and discord, how can the Eucharist be a sign of reconciliation?

Dr. Jerry Galipeau is Vice President and Chief Publishing Officer at the J.S. Paluch Company and World Library Publications, its music and liturgy division.  Before coming to World Library, he served for fifteen years as Director of Liturgy and Music at parishes in Florida and Illinois.

A popular parish mission presenter, Jerry has delivered keynotes and workshops throughout the United States and Canada on the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, liturgical spirituality, ritual music, evangelization, and adult spiritual formulation.  Past chair of the Board of Directors of the North American Forum on the Catechumenate, he earned the Doctor of Ministry with a concentration in liturgical studies from Catholic Theological Union at Chicago in 1999.

Jerry's articles have appeared in Catechumenate, Liturgical Singer, Pastoral Music, Today's Parish Rite, and Church magazines, as well as Sourcebook for Sundays and Seasons.  Jerry's recordings and books are published by World Library Publications.
