Beginning in January, the Eucharistic Revival initiative is hosting a series of “BREAD Talks” in the diocese’s five regional deaneries, each at a different brewery. At each of the events, modeled after the popular Ted Talks, local speakers will share brief testimonies — their “eucharistic love stories.” Following their sharing, a main speaker will give a longer talk, about 20-30 minutes, on a eucharistic theme. These are in-person-only events. Come join us for these free, faith-filled gatherings
