Bishop Robert Barron’s newest study program THE MASS: Encountering Heaven on Earth: begins Tuesday, February 12, 2019

This new series begins on Tuesday, February 12, 2019

This new 6 session program on the Mass will be facilitated by Fr. Gonnella, Fr. Sarmiento and Seminarian Nick Sentovich.  We will have the DVD presentation by Bishop Barron, some discussion, and then some “walk through the Mass” teaching by our facilitators. The program has an excellent study guide to help guide our journey together.

The morning gathering will be at the Downtown Church from  9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
and in the evening at Crane Road from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. 

Here is the focus of each session:

Tuesday, February 12 — “A Privileged Encounter” Tuesday, March 5 — “Responding to God”

Tuesday, February 19 — “Called Out of the World” Tuesday, March 12—“Preparing for Sacrifice”

Tuesday, February 26 — “God Speaks Our Story” Tuesday, March 19 — “The Real Presence Creates Communion”

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and you’ll be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of Christian life.
