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 through 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
-- Matthew 18:20
