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? Beginning Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Father Dave and Father Rigo will conduct this series.  The series will be each Tuesday at 6:30 pm for eight weeks ending on October 30th.

 

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.
