Mass of Remembrance

 

  During the month of November the Church traditionally remembers “our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection”.

  Beginning November 1st our Book of Remembrance will be available near the baptismal font.  You are invited to write the names of your loved ones who have died.

  On Thursday, November 2nd at 7:00 p.m. a Mass will be offered to remember those who have gone before us, especially those buried from St. Anastasia this past year.   Everyone is invited to come to remember all of our loved ones who have preceded us into the Kingdom of Heaven and to share an expression of sympathy with all who have suffered loss through death.  The liturgy will be followed by light refreshments.

Fr. Steve will be inviting us to come together in October for 5 weeks. We will be partaking in a wonderful study called Altaration, taking a look at the Catholic Mass. We meet on Mondays starting October 9, 16, 23, 30 & November 6, at 7:00 p.m. in the Davidson Center. The purpose of this series is to look at and capture the beauty and depth of the Mass.  Some Catholics consider the Mass to be a bit antiquated and rather boring. Even those of us with deeper knowledge of what is transpiring during the liturgy can find it difficult to focus at times for a variety of reasons.

We live in an over stimulated, visually based media culture, one in which attention spans have been shortened and people often prefer entertainment to engagement. We will begin to look at the Mass from one of opinion to one of perspective. We will point out how our own perspectives can be more reactive than proactive. When we begin to understand what the Mass really is, we see how shortsighted and at times even blind we are to the reality of the Mass as it unfolds before us.

The Mass is a profound mystery to be sure. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) reminds us, “Liturgical catechesis aims to initiate people into the mystery of Christ… by proceeding from the visible to the invisible, from the sign to the thing signified, from the sacraments to the mysteries.” (CCC 1075)

I am hoping to see you all there! If you have any questions, please give me call. I can be reached at 248-689-8380, Ext. 120. Register by email 

God bless,
