Lenten Season

Lenten Series on the Mass
The Eucharistic Revival Steering Committee, in collaboration with the Office of Christian Formation and Marywood, will be offering a five-part series on the Mass on Monday evenings beginning at 7 p.m. in the Wisdom Center of Marywood Retreat & Conference Center. Talks will be an hour followed by a question-and-answer session.  These talks will be taped in order for us to create an adult education series on the Mass. The videos will be packaged in 15-minute segments with reflection questions. Bishop Pohlmeier will be recording a separate 15-minute session on Entering into the Mystery: Reverence and Sacred Silence.

March 6 – “Singing to the Lord: Sacred Music in Worship” with Dr. Bernie Sans                   

March 13 – “Celebrating the Paschal Mystery: History and Development of Liturgy with Father Tom Willis                      

March 20 – “Proclaiming and Our Response: The Liturgy of the Word” with Father Tim Lindenfelser

April 3 – “Living the Liturgical Year: How the Church Marks Time” with Father Michael Kieler
