Rediscovering The Mass

"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.'"  - John 6:35


Are you seeking to rediscover your friendship with Jesus? Haven't been to Mass in a while and wondering where to start? Start by getting to know Jesus again through prayer. It doesn't matter how long its been since you have been to Mass. You are always invited to encounter Jesus in the Mass.


What is the Mass?

The Holy Mass is where we celebrate and enter into Christ's saving work of redemption. In the Mass we gather as one body to hear God's word and to be nourished by the Holy Eucharist, which is the source and summit of our faith and the food that Christ promised would bring us to eternal life. For this reason, the Mass is the pivotal event of our lives, the center of our belief as Catholic Christians. In the Mass Christ himself is truly present: through the community gathered together in worship, through the ministry of the priest, through the proclamation of the Word, and though the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ given to us in the Holy Eucharist.


"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

 -- Matthew 18:20











If you are not Catholic or have not yet received your first Holy Communion, we would like to help you prepare to receive Christ's body and blood in the Eucharist, for more information please visit our RCIA page.



Holy Days of Obligation

In addition to Sunday, Mass attendance is required on Holy Days of Obligation. The days to be observed as Holy Days of Obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:


January 1, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

November 1, the Solemnity of All Saints

December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception

December 25, the Solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ


Please note:  Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated. Please mark your calendar with each of these dates to be sure and join us—as it is our obligation and our privilege to celebrate the Holy Mass on these days. Holy Days appear on the parish Liturgical Calendar and in the bulletin.
