MATER CHRISTI PARISH MISSION

LITURGY 101

It has been some time since we had a parish mission. And so, this year we will take time on a weekend during lent to reflect on how we pray together. We will refresh our appreciation for Liturgical prayer. We will renew our dedication to the quality of our Liturgical prayer. We will remember the words of Jesus: “Where two or three of you are gathered in my name, I am with you.” And, “Do this in memory of me.”, spoken during the giving of the bread and wine at the Last Supper. We have each had wonderful experiences of good liturgy. We have each had bad experiences of poor liturgy. What makes the difference? What helps the prayer happen at good or poor liturgy? Mark your calendar for Mission time.

SATURDAY, MARCH 10 AND SUNDAY, MARCH 11
Mission talk during the Homily at all masses

SUNDAY, MARCH 11 AND MONDAY, MARCH 12
Mission Service at 7pm
