Father Degagne will offer a two-evening course and reflection on the Mass. We will meet on Mondays, February 10 and February 24 at 7:00 pm in the Parish Center. The words of the Second Vatican Council which were often reiterated by the soon to be canonized Blessed John Paul II: "The Eucharist is the Source and the Summit of God's grace for us". We will be using the Catechism of the Catholic Church, passages from Vatican Council II Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, and references from the General Instruction on the Roman Missal for our study. We will discuss all the rituals - symbols, words, and gestures - and how they unite the liturgy into our central act of worship. Knowing and understanding the essentials of the Mass will always enrich our participation for each of us personally and all of us as a community. Please join us.
