Altaration ~ A Study of the Catholic Mass
Please join Fr. Wayne in a six-week course beginning Monday, September 18th at 7:00 p.m. in the rectory.
Altaration addresses head-on one of the biggest problems we all face: how do we get Catholics to appreciate the awesome beauty and mystery of the Mass, and to actually look forward to attending and participating? Through a unique learning experience, including powerful cinematography and other resources, we will come to see the Mass and the priesthood in a dramatically new way. Altaration is designed to stir thought, create conversation, dispel myths, and inspire souls to a deep and lasting love for the Mass.
Please join us every Wednesday morning from 11:00 a.m. to noon. We will meet to study the upcoming Sunday Gospel. Each week, we will consider the Gospel’s historical context, the teaching of Jesus and the Gospel’s application to our lives today. We will also look at a current event happening in the universal Catholic church – whether that be on a local, national or international level. All study materials will be provided to participants. Please call Elizabeth Healy for more information (781-326-0550 x119. Everyone is welcome!
We are reading Peace of Soul: Timeless Wisdom on Finding Serenity and Joy by the Venerable Fulton J. Sheen. Archbishop Sheen contends that we cannot have peace of mind without peace of soul. He further writes that peace of soul cannot come from humanity but rather must come from Divine help. Although written back in 1949, the wisdom contained in this book is still very relevant today. Our next Book Club Meeting is Tuesday evening, August 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the rectory. Please read up to and including chapters 7. If you need assistance getting the book please contact Elizabeth Healy at 781.326.0550 ext. 119.
Interested in singing? Want to be a part of those that enhance the beauty of our celebrations? Then consider joining the parish choir. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings in the Parish Center Music Room located on the second floor at 7:00 P.M. Also, speak with our Music Director Kyle after the Masses. St. Augustine reminds us that those who sing pray twice!
