Understanding the Mass

St. John Cantius Parish is pleased to offer a course in Understanding the Mass. This course, offered periodically throughout the year, guides the faithful through the use of the Latin-English Missal for the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form).

Understanding the Mass will also assist the faithful to “pray the Mass” (Pope St. Pius X) with greater fervor, devotion and understanding. The spirituality of the Mass will be discussed as well as the history of the Sacred Liturgy.

The use of Gregorian Chant will be explained and the participants in the course will have the opportunity to learn to sing settings of the Gregorian Kyralie (Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Agnus Dei). This most popular course is most beneficial toward a deeper spiritual penetration of the sacred mysteries of our Catholic faith.
