Our weekend masses are celebrations devoted to the loving worship of God and experience of Christian community. Each liturgy has developed its own “feel” or “flavor” comprised of the blend of music styles and participants. You are warmly encouraged to come and experience our different celebrations and perhaps find one in which feel the most at home.
Central to our celebration of Mass is the sacrament of the Eucharist. The Eucharist is one of the Sacraments of Inititation (along with baptism and confirmation). Often called 'communion,' the Eucharist is the very source of our entire lives as Catholics. We say this because the Eucharist really is the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ. The Eucharist is not just a symbol. In this Sacrament, the very essence or substance of the bread and wine is completely changed. Because the Eucharist is Christ Himself, we say that the Eucharist is "the source and summit" of the Christian life.Our Eucharistic Liturgy is the primary way by which Christ our Good Shepherd heals, feeds and strengthens His people. In Catholic worship we experience God’s Sabbath rest as we lay our joys and sorrows, blessings and wounds at the feet of Jesus. The Eucharist ( ‘thanksgiving’ in Greek) is the worship through which we commune with God and each other. Through Scripture, song, ritual and gesture we proclaim God’s Word and intercede for all the Saints.
St. Augustine said, “Become what you receive.” In His Body and Blood, we are transformed for the life of the world, becoming Christ’s hands and feet to serve our neighbor in need. With Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, and other Sacraments we sanctify the week with prayer like a fragrant incense rising before the throne of God in the New Jerusalem.
All are welcome to join us in this heavenly worship.
