LATIN MASSES DURING LENT: Begins February 21st

During Lent (begins Ash Wednesday, February 17th), Holy Family will host LATIN MASSES (Low Mass without music) at Noon on Feb. 21, Feb. 28, Mar. 7, Mar. 14, Mar. 21, and Mar. 28.

BACKGROUND:

WHAT IS EXTRAORDINARY FORM?

The ordinary form of the Mass uses the Roman Missal (the book containing the ceremonies and prayers for Mass) that was revised and published after the Second Vatican Council. The extraordinary form of the Mass uses the Roman Missal published in 1962, before the revisions following Vatican II. In 2007, with his letter Summorum Pontificum, Pope Benedict XVI established the 1962 manner of celebrating mass as a form that all priests of the Latin rite may offer without any special permission and coined the terms “ordinary form” and “extraordinary form.” The extraordinary form is often called the “old Latin Mass,” the “traditional Latin Mass,” or the “Tridentine Mass.”

“A VISIT WITH ST. PAUL– Saturday, March 13th, Holy Family Church, 1 p.m.

“A Visit with St. Paul” is a one-man show on the life of St. Paul. With audience participation encouraged, Glenn Smith brings St. Paul to life through a dramatic presentation of the Great Apostle’s life and legacy. Set while Paul is in prison, the audience gets to “visit” him there and hear his story. Typical presentations are about an hour. The event is free and open to the public.

Paul the Apostle, commonly known as Saint Paul and also known by his Hebrew name Saul of Tarsus, was a Christian apostle who spread the teachings of Jesus in the first-century world. St. Paul is the patron saint of missionaries, evangelists, writers, journalists, authors, public workers, rope and saddle makers, and tentmakers.

Glenn Smith grew up in Lynbrook, NY.  Raised Catholic, he lost his faith at nineteen. Three years later, through a charismatic prayer meeting and a powerful three-day fast, he realized beyond doubt that Jesus is alive and loves us all beyond measure. Serving as an urban missionary, working for parishes, performing as St. Paul, and by writing, he has found many creative ways of sharing God’s love.
