Adult Faith Formation

Jesus: The Way, the Truth and the Life: is a ten-week study program presented by Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Edward Sri. Filmed on-location in the Holy Land and anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’ life—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way If interested in the study, please submit $25 with your name to the Parish Office or place your payment and name in a marked envelope in the Collection Basket by January 4th.

Extraordinary Form Mass

Holy Mass according to the liturgical books of 1962, sometimes referred to as the “Tridentine Mass” or “Traditional Latin Mass” is offered in the main church Saturday mornings at  8:00 AM.  This is more frequent than previously, when this form of the Mass was only offered monthly here at the parish. This is for a number of reasons. As you know, Father began offering Mass in this form in February of 2019 monthly. However, it has been observed that there is a significant increase in attendance at those Masses when compared with the typical Saturday morning Ordinary Form Mass. This points to the fact that there is definitely a desire among the faithful for Masses celebrated in this form, thus the increase in offerings from monthly to weekly. As a reminder, translations are always provided for those who attend in order to help them familiarize themselves with the flow of the rite and to assist in promoting a full conscious actual participation.
