PowerPoint (PPS) Slideshow Presentations

After downloading the PowerPoint package and unzipping it, be sure to read the “README” file before doing anything else, for further instructions. The README file in the folder that the PowerPoint package unzips into describes how to run the presentation.

Our presentations are not editable. However, you can obtain a copy to customize. Here’s how and why.

Many of our documents include color photos. What if you don’t have a fast color photocopier?
If you don’t have a good photocopier or the time to make the copies, no problem! You can email or upload them to the website of your local printshop, Staples, Office Depot, Fedex, or similar place, and have them printed overnight.

If a Word document displays funky positions of lines, titles, text boxes, graphics, etc.
If a page does not format correctly for you, it might be because your software’s page margins are set differently than mine. Or it might be because your software’s hyphenation option has not been activated.

To set the margins correctly:

In MS Word, open a new, blank document. Then go to the File menu, then choose “Page Setup”. There, set the margins to:

Top: 1″
All other margins: 0.8″

document margins

After clicking the “okay” button, go back to the handout and open it again. It should look fine now. If the print-out does not show all parts of the page, go into your printer’s properties, options, or preferences, and choose the check-boxes that enable “background printing” as well as “hidden objects”.

Occasionally, a Word document has different margin settings than this. If the above fails to fix your problem, let us know.

Multi-Media Meditations (.wmv files)

Save it to your “My Videos” folder or anywhere you want to store it. Afterward, go there and double-click on it to open it, or start your Media Player and open it from there.

Beth Solis, a group facilitator in Oklahoma, says, "Our members asked us in the beginning if we minded taking things slowly so we could have time to really discuss each paragraph. We always have such great discussion! The PPT has been very helpful and is a nice addition."

study group

Feedback from a study group in Florida

Sylvia says, "This experience deepened my love for the Eucharist in ways I couldn’t imagine when we first started this course."

Karen says, "I never thought that I would read an encyclical. However, using the study guide made this experience so rewarding. It broadened my view about the Eucharist and my Catholic faith that makes me love and appreciate what Jesus did for us ever more deeply."

Tim says, "Being the only convert in the group, I ascertained a better and stronger understanding of the importance of the Eucharist, not only in the Mass but also in my daily life."

Jimmy says, "I learned so much about the Eucharist that was powerful and enlightening. This course helped deepen my faith and my appreciation for the Holy Mass."

Erin says, "It was amazing to get everyone’s perspective on the readings. And it deepened my love in the beautiful gift that the Eucharist is to all humanity for our salvation."

Shirley says, "This course was so enlightening. It was a gift that helped me grow in my faith."
