Catechesis on the Mass (from 2012-2013)
Beginning with the 1st Sunday of Advent, in honor of the Year of Faith, we began a project where, before every Sunday Mass, we heard a brief explanation of the various parts of the Mass. Between December and March, we covered the entire Mass with the hope that by renewing our appreciation of the high point of our week, we may better put into practice the saving mysteries which we celebrate at Holy Mass.
