Aquinas Academy Course: The Holy Spirit in the Gospel of St John

25 September and 2 and 9 October 2019
Presented by Dr Robert Tilley. John's Gospel is often styled the 'sacramental Gospel' in that it has much to say about baptism and the Eucharist. And yet the odd thing is that this is the only Gospel not to include the words of the institution of the Eucharist, instead it includes an account of Jesus' promises to the Apostles. Chief among these promises is that of the sending of the Holy Spirit...and more, it is also the Gospel of the Holy Trinity. 10am to 12 noon at the Aquinas Academy, Level 5, 141 Harrington St, The Rocks.
