PARISH STUDY

A Biblical Walk Through the Mass

As Catholics, the Catholic Mass is the center of our Faith. We celebrate it every day. We know all the responses. We know all the gestures. But do we know what it all means?  In A Biblical Walk Through the Mass, Dr. Edward Sri takes us on a unique tour of the liturgy. Based on the revised translation of the Mass, this study will explore the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience in the liturgy and explains their profound significance. This intriguing look at the Catholic Mass is sure to renew your faith and deepen your devotion to the Eucharist.  This is a four week study that will be held during the month of September. 

                                                                                        2 Class Times Offered Starting:

                                                                    Monday, Sept 9th at 9am in the Parish Center Boardroom 
                                                                    and Wednesday, Sept 11th at 6:30pm in the Church Hall
