Missing in Mass Study

NEW SPRING 2021

What Are You Missing in the Mass?

Whether you have attended Mass since you were young, or recently converted to Catholicism, or are curious about the Catholic Church, there is much that we don’t understand or miss when attending Mass.  The main objective of this bible study is to heighten our experience of and participation in the Mass.  

There is no required pre-reading or prior bible study needed!  

Overview

Thursdays in Parish Center C
April 8 – May 27
7 PM
ONLINE OPTION AVAILBLE!

Elements of the Mass

Each week, a different part of the mass will be explained and highlighted.  The main objective of this element is to ensure that we understand what is occurring, what the foundations are in scripture or the teaching of the church, and how we can participate more fully and faithfully.

Upcoming Sunday Readings

One of the best ways that we can prepare to participate in the mass each week is to review and reflect on the readings.  Each session, the upcoming Sunday readings will be explained and elaborated upon.

Sources and Facilitator

This study is faciltated by parishioner, Christa Pichler.  She will reference Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), and many other sources to provide insights and education to help deepen our understanding of the Mass.

Weekly Lessons

The slide deck from each week’s lesson will be posted Friday morning.

Virtually participate or view recorded lessons on our YouTube Channel.  Must be a subscriber to participate in chat function during live lessons.
