The Eucharistic Presence of the Good Shepherd: Learning to See the Lord

with Tim O’Malley

June 22, 2021

11:00 am – 1:00 pm EDT

In this common dialogue, we will look to the Eucharistic Presence of the Good Shepherd with our children and our Church. This talk will begin with Tim’s experience of his son’s First Communion and will also draw on wider sources throughout Church history, our forebears in faith, who invite us to behold the presence of the Lord in the Eucharist. Please join us for this vital conversation! 

Timothy P. O’Malley, Ph.D. is academic director of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy and director of digital education at the McGrath Institute for Church Life. He teaches and researches in the areas of liturgical-sacramental theology, catechesis, and spirituality at the University of Notre Dame. He is the recent author of Real Presence: What Does It Mean and Why Does It Matter (Ave Maria Press, 2021). He is married to Kara and has two children, ages 8 and 4.


Registration for this event is now closed. This session will be recorded.

MAPS-Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Virtual Information Session
Aug 10 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Congratulations! Your discernment process has led you to this exciting point where you want to know more about whether a MAPS-CGS degree might be the next right thing for you and for your ministry. We imagine you have many questions as you begin this journey. From “How will I pay for this?” to “Is it really possible to balance work and life AND graduate school?”.

We have assembled a panel of faculty and staff from Aquinas and alumni from the MAPS-CGS program for this 90-minute virtual session where you will get answers to questions like these (and any others that are on your mind!)

– What is the admissions process like? What is required for the application? If I apply, when will I find out if I am admitted?

– What are the opportunities for financial aid?

– What kinds of courses will I be taking? How long does it take to finish the degree? What’s special about this program compared to all the others out there?

– What is it actually like to be a student in the program? What will I gain from this experience?

We hope that you will join us for what is sure to be an enlightening and enlivening conversation! See you soon!
