Life in the Eucharist (LITES)

The Life in the Eucharist (LITE) program is a parish based Faith Formation Program that is a ministry in collaboration and under the guidance of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament Priests, Brothers, Sisters engaged in the ministry of Eucharistic Evangelization. The program, led by lay parishioners who are specially trained, is very powerful and easy to identify with. Our mission is to make known the love of God manifested in the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ, celebrated and contemplated in the Eucharist and lived in communion with others. The OLG Life in the Eucharist team has been active in the Cleveland Diocese for over ten years, and has presented the program numerous times at Our Lady of Guadalupe and other surrounding parishes.

The Life in the Eucharist program consists of presentations based on theological themes rooted in the teachings of the Catholic Church. It comprises an integral approach to the Eucharist rooted in the celebration of the liturgy and our lives with a deeper, more involved appreciation in the abiding presence of God through prayer. This leads our hearts to be liberated for living the Eucharist in communal service with our neighbors, those in need and the world in general. The program is a series of stories, teachings, small and large group discussions, witnesses, skits, songs, prayers, laughter and humor presented on each of the five themes covered. These themes are: God’s love as Nourishment, Reconciliation, Transformation, Abiding Presence and Communion with the Suffering.
