A Biblical Walk Through the Mass – “What Happens at Mass?”

Scheduled to begin February 1, 2018 – Thursdays biweekly – details coming soon.

Do you ever wish you could “get more” out of Mass? One key for unlocking the mystery of the Mass is Scripture. The climax of salvation history itself is made present sacramentally in the Mass. The more we know about the Biblical roots of the Mass, the more we will come to appreciate the splendor of the liturgy and the more we will be prepared to encounter Jesus and give ourselves to Him at every Mass.

The beauty and power of the Mass can be better appreciated when we understand the significance of the Holy Eucharist as a sacrifice, Jesus Christ’s real presence and as our communion meal.
