We Remember, We Celebrate, We Believe: A Day of Encounter with Jesus in the Mass A One Day Retreat presented by Pat Rinker Saturday November 10, 2018 from 8:30 am - 4;30 pm
Come join us Saturday, November 10, as we reflect on the richness and meaning of our liturgy. We will explore the meaning of our movement during the mass, and how the passion of Jesus Christ is at the heart of what we participate in. How do we encounter Jesus in His Word, in each other, in the community gathered, and in the Eucharist? How is what we participate in a participation in the mystery of Christ? We will conclude with Saturday evening mass. The day will begin 8:30 AM and conclude with 4:00 PM Mass.
