Understanding the Mass

Understanding the Mass Series

Beginning on October 8-9, we began a teaching series called Understanding the Mass. This is in response to the Holy Father's request for a Eucharistic Revival to be implemented on a universal, diocesan, and parish level. The series is divided into six parts, in which the priest-celebrant prior to each Mass has offered a brief mini-lesson on the different sections of the Mass. To assist our parishioners in preparation and in engaging the presentation, a bulletin insert has been provided for the topic to be covered a weekend prior for each of the presentations. For example, on October 8-9, the priests will offer a short lesson on the Introductory Rites. A bulletin insert will be provided concerning this lesson on the weekend of October 1-2.

There are also other ways we can personally renew our commitment and love for the Eucharist and the Mass. You may want to consider attending daily Mass once a week, or sign-up for Eucharistic Adoration every Wednesday. I would also encourage you to Save the Date for our annual Forty Hours Eucharistic Celebration from November 5-7. I'm pleased to announce that Fr. Joseph Szolack, pastor at Our lady of Hope Parish in Blackwood will be our preacher. More details will follow, but Forty Hours will be wonderful time for retreat, reflection, and prayer.

God bless you and may our Eucharistic Lord continue to be for you a source of strength and grace.

Sincerely in Christ, Fr. Allain Caparas
