The Eucharist: a mystery to be celebrated

This evening our catechetical programme 'Curious about the Eucharist?' resumes with the first of four Lenten talks. The four talks will explore how we celebrate Mass and why we do things in the way we do. They take place under the heading, 'The Eucharist - a mystery to be celebrated', a title lifted from Pope Benedict's document Sacramentum Caritatis (the full text can be found here). The first session takes place this evening at 7:30pm in St Walburga's chapel (access from Balmoral Road); all are welcome. There is also an 'open day' taking place in the sacristy this coming weekend - after Mass there will be an opportunity to come and see close-up some of the things we use to celebrate Mass, and to find out more about what they mean.
