One way that we as a community can draw near to Christ is to understand how we worship. Understand the very basics about the mass that we celebrate every week. Most of us are familiar with the parts of the mass, the prayers, and many of the hymns. But how often do you stop to think about why you are praying that prayer? What do those words mean? Why the Alleluia? Why an entrance procession? We know the role of the priest, lector, musicians, etc. but what is the role of the people in the pews? 
The Diocese of Chicago took an entire church year to celebrate the institution of the mass. And in doing so, put together a wonderfully informative video that will answer many of the "why do we do that" questions.

This video is about 23 minutes long and can be accessed by clicking on the picture above. 

If you would like to register at one of our churches, please click on "Register", print out the regisration form and then drop it in the mail or the collection basket at any weekend mass.
