Adult Catechesis resumes in the parish hall after the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, November 8. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Vatican II’s document on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum and in preparation for the celebration of National Bible Week (Nov. 15-22), Gloria Salinas will unpack Dei Verbum explaining in six concise steps the main message of the document and its relevance for today’s Catholics. Pat Schwerdtfeger will explain how the use of the Bible during Mass was revolutionized and expanded as a result of Vatican II and how we can deepen our experience of Mass by knowing a few keys to the Lectionary. Appetizers and refreshments will be served. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR BIBLE AND A FRIEND!
