THE MASS

 

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Robert Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life.

 

Why this?  Before the Missionary Servants came to St. Patrick Church the Pastoral Council was thinking about forming a Liturgy or Worship Committee.  They even did a survey on who might be interested.  But before we attempt to form such a committee, we feel it is important to take a look at the Mass so we have a better understanding and appreciation for what we are doing.

 

When?  The series will be each Tuesday at 6:30 pm for eight weeks ending on October 30th. Fr. David and Fr. Rigo will conduct this series.

 

What will we do?  We will view a 30 minute video by Bishop Barron (English with Spanish subtitles).  We will have a discussion on the content.  We will talk about practical matters pertaining to the Mass.

 

Who is this for?  All the Lectors, Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist, Musicians, Ushers, Altar Servers, Ladies Sodality, are asked to attend.  Also, the Series is open to any member of the parish who would like to deepen their appreciation of the Mass.

 


LAZARUS: There is a need for assorted can vegetables and noodle soup, bar soap, toothpaste, and toilet paper for the needy. Thank you for your generosity.

"The family idea is dear to God and to the Church ... I declare that I recognize the value of a family spirit, of a family working in the Church, of a family that with ardor will take these words from our dear Lord’s lips: ‘Going, therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.'"

 

- Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge,  Founder of St. Patrick School and 3rd Pastor of St. Patrick Church


 

 

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not perish
but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned,
because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 

                                

                                                                         JN 3:16-18
