The Eucharist: Food for the Journey

In our new covenant journey, Jesus is ever present to us in the Eucharist as our traveling companion. Christ has given us the mass as a means to take part in His sacrifice on the cross. As we are fed at His table, we are healed, made whole, and holy.

The Eucharist is a foretaste of heaven and a pledge of life eternal. Come to hear Father Bill McCarthy as he speaks about this healing sacrament of mystery and grace. This weekend seminar begins Friday evening July 23, continues through all day Saturday, and ends Sunday morning.

Main Celebrant: Father Bill McCarthy
Saturday, July 24

Sunday, July 27
10:00 AM through 12:15 PM

Divine Mercy: A Way of Life

The essence of forgiveness by God's standards is the giving of mercy. Mercy means to treat others better than they deserve. In the Old Testament, the gold plate over the ark of the covenant was called the "mercy-seat." Here Yahweh sat in all His mercy.

The New Testament fulfillment of the "mercy-seat" is the tabernacle where the Eucharistic Jesus is present to dispense His mercy. How can we learn to live mercy in our daily lives? How can we bring Christ and His mercy to a hurting world?

Come and hear Dr. Bryan Thatcher as he shares the powerful message of mercy and hope that the Lord wishes to pour out on us.

FOUR-DAY SEMINAR

How to Teach the Bible in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Learn how the Holy Spirit can work through your Bible teachings to lead others to Christ and to help them grow in faith. "Faith, then, comes through hearing, and what is heard is the word of Christ" (Rm 10:17). This seminar requires four days — Mon, Jul 26 through Thurs, Jul 29.

THREE-DAY SEMINARS

Discipleship for a Civilization of Love

How can you make a difference in the world around you? Answer the call Jesus makes to you to be His disciple. This three-day seminar will equip you to begin the journey through teaching, witnessing, and encouragement. Learn to use the resources God has given to bring about a life-changing society by operating in the power of the Holy Spirit. "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations" (Mt 28:19). This seminar requires three days — Mon, Jul 26, Tues, July 27, and Wed, Jul 28.

The Gift of Healing
We ourselves, our families, neighborhoods, workplaces, and parishes are in need of healing and freedom in Jesus. Is the Holy Spirit calling you to minister His healing to those who are ill, hurt, and brokenhearted? "The sick upon whom they lay their hands will recover" (Mk 16:18). This seminar requires three days— Mon, Jul 26, Tues, Jul 27, and Wed, Jul 28.

 

Weekday Schedule

Monday through Thursday classes begin at 9:00 AM and end at 4:45 PM with Eucharistic Liturgy at 10:15 AM.

TWO-DAY SEMINARS

Bible Timeline: Journey Through the Scriptures
A study of Salvation History beginning with Creation and ending with Jesus and His Church will be offered in this two-day workshop. As you plot your individual timeline, you will gain an overall picture of God's design as outlined in the Bible. This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 26 and Tues, Jul 27.

The Holy Spirit, Prophesy and Renewal
This new seminar on prophecy focuses on Scriptural models to bring about renewal in ourselves, our families, and our parishes. Come and receive the fire of the Holy Spirit! "1 have come to set the earth on fire, and how 1 wish it were already blazing!" (Lk 12:49) This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 26 and Tues, Jul 27.

Life in the Spirit Seminar
Is God calling you to a new depth in your relationship with Christ in the power of the Spirit? Are you searching for something more? Do you have a thirst that has not been satisfied? Come and receive all God wants to give you, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes down on you..."(Acts 1:8) This seminar requires two days — Mon, Jul 26 and Tues, Jul 27.

Biblical Leadership: A Gift for Today
The Holy Spirit in the Scripture provides instruction for growth in holiness and discipleship as well as many models of Biblical leadership. Many ministries are floundering because leaders do not answer God's call to serve in the kingdom. "You have known the sacred Scriptures, the source of the wisdom which through faith in Jesus Christ leads to salvation" (2 Tm 3:15). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 28 and Thurs, Jul 29.

Discovering Your Spiritual Gifts
Do you know your spiritual gifts? Have you wondered how the Lord wants you to use them? The Scripture identifies at least thirty gifts or charisms available to us in the power of the Holy Spirit. This program will give you the knowledge and practical tools to identify your own gifts and those of others. "Set your hearts on spiritual gifts" (1 Cor 14:1). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 28 and Thurs, Jul 29.

The Gift of Prayer in the Christian Life
A prayer life is essential in order to live a fully Christian life open to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Come to learn the many resources that we, as Catholics, have at our fingertips — the Bible, the Catechism, the writings of the Saints, and the prayer of the Church. "Rejoice in hope, be patient under trial, persevere in prayer" (Rm 12:12). This seminar requires two days — Wed, Jul 28 and Thurs, Jul 29. 

Holiness: God's Lifestyle for Us
The Holy Spirit wants to lead us into a new life-style of holiness. Matthew 6:33 tells us that if we seek the Lord's way of holiness, He will then supply all our other needs. This two-day seminar offers the resources, opportunities, and encouragement to move forward. "God chose us in Him, before the world began, to be holy and blameless in His sight, to be full of love" (Eph 1:4). This seminar requires two days — Thurs, July 29 and Fri, July 30.

Psalms: A Book of Prayer, Praise and Power
A psalm is the cry of real people in real-life situations. The writers of the Psalms cried out to God in very human conversation — in praise and supplication — in times of joy and distress. Look to this book to gain understanding of how to recognize the movement of the Spirit and to respond with heartfelt prayer. "I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart" (Ps 9:2). This seminar requires two days — Thurs, July 29 and Fri, July 30.

ONE-DAY SEMINARS

Using the Charisms for Service
Spiritual gifts that we hear little about are the gifts of mercy, service, hospitality, and helps. Yet, many ministries would flounder without them. Rich and Daneen Gosser will bring to this seminar their experience of the use of these gifts in practical ways. "Put your gifts at the service of one another" (1 Pt 4:10). This seminar requires one day — Mon, July 26.

The Rosary: Light for Our Times
The Rosary is the simple but profound prayer centered on Christ as seen through the eyes of Mary, His mother. This beautiful prayer will be brought to life as we focus on Christ and especially the new mysteries of light. Pope John Paul II tells us that the Rosary is a splendid form of prayer "which gradually took form in the second millennium under the guidance of the Spirit of God." Come and learn more about this spiritual powerhouse. This seminar requires one day — Tues, July 27.

O Mary, Conceived Without Sin
In celebration of the 150 year anniversary of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, this seminar will be dedicated to Mary under that title. As Mary's children, we seek to emulate her by growing in holiness. Come and hear Father Rob Jack as he reveals the richness of this relationship with Mary, our Mother. This seminar requires one day — Wed, Jul 28.

How to be a Holy Defender of the Faith
Come and learn how to defend some of the basic beliefs of our faith. This one-day foundational seminar takes a look at the truths of our Catholic faith that are often misunderstood. "Should anyone ask you the reason for this hope of yours, be ever ready to reply" (1 Pt 3:15). This seminar requires one day — Thurs, July 29.

Discover the Immense Power of God's Word
Discover for yourself the great power of the Scriptures. Learn how to read, pray, and live in the light of God's Word. As we get into the Bible, the Bible gets into us. "Indeed, God's Word is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword" (Heb 4:12). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Jul 30.

Getting to Know the Guadalupe Bible College
"Live according to what you have learned and accepted..."(Phil 4:9) This program is for those interested in learning more about being either a student or teacher (home study or classroom) for Guadalupe Bible College. This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 30.

The Gift of Intercession
Pope John Paul II has said that "prayer and fasting are the first and most effective weapons against the forces of evil" (Gospel of Life, 100). Learn how to be a prayer warrior in the army of Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. "The fervent prayer of a holy person is powerful indeed" (Jas 5:16). This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 30.

The Laity: The Real Evangelizers
The laity are on the front lines of our secularized society. Learn how to fulfill your calling from the Lord to bring light to the darkness by sharing the gospel of Christ. "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation..." (1 Pt 2:9). This seminar requires one day — Fri, Jul 30.

Rebuild the House of the Lord
The Lord wants us to rebuild His house, His bride, His Church. This one-day seminar is designed to enable you to focus on Jesus as you serve in your parish. As Catholics we have rich resources to call upon as well as the powerful action of the Holy Spirit through the sacraments and the liturgy. "How deep are the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God!" (Rm 11:33). This seminar requires one day — Fri, July 30.

WORSHIP

Worship is an important and integral part of the Bible Institute. Some of those who will lead us in worship include Presentation's Music Ministry, which is made up of many gifted and dedicated people. Paul Egan, Marianne Lander, John Egan, and Rick Nohle along with others, have led the music in past years. The Holy Spirit's anointing for leading worship through music is falling on Presentation's younger members under the leadership of Elizabeth Egan. The Lord uses them to bring us into a spirit of praise and worship at our liturgies.
