The Mass

Begins May 23, 2023
Tuesday evenings at 7:00 – 9:00 PM

(5-week session)

In this course we will examine the core principles of the Eucharistic liturgy as found in the foundational documents of the Mass. We will consider its history and make connections between the modern liturgy and the historical context. Our central point of discussion throughout the course will be focused on the celebration of the Paschal Mystery. Over the course of the five weeks we will take a deep dive into the elements of the Sunday celebration and its component parts. This course will be of value for liturgical ministers, RCIA Team members, and anyone interested in learning more about this most central celebration of all the baptized.

All course materials are online and we will meet for class lecture/discussion once a week on Tuesday evenings 7-9 pm via Zoom.

Images of Jesus

Begins May 24, 2023
Wednesday evenings at
7:00 – 9:00 PM
(5-week session)

Through this course the participant will have the opportunity to examine, from a variety of theological perspectives, what we know and believe about the central figure of the Christian faith and arguably the most influential person who ever walked the earth. After looking at many different resources, the student will be able to form a personal answer to “Who do you say that I am?”

We will look at the images of Jesus in the New Testament, as understood in theology today, as understood in the Paschal Mystery and as encountered in the liturgical life of the Church.

All course materials are online and we will meet for class lecture/discussion once a week on Wednesday evenings 7-9 pm via Zoom.
