ADULT EDUCATION PROGRAM WITH DN. TOM

Dn. Tom of St. Kateri Parish is presenting Bishop Robert Barron’s DVD series The Mass followed by group discussion. The Mass series is held every other Monday beginning September 10th, ending December 3rd. These 90 minute sessions begin at 7 PM at St. Kateri in the “St. Martha’s Room”. Entrance is from the well-lighted back parking lot, all on one level with no steps.

Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Robert Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with Christ. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm. See how the Mass resonates with a call from God and his people, the church’s response. Most importantly, see how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in “the source and summit of the Christian life”.

While there is no fee for participating in these classes, the Associated Student Workbook, which cost $25, is highly recommended. Please register and send your check written out to St. Kateri Parish, 16101 Rotunda Drive, Dearborn MI 48120. Have questions? Contact the parish office 313-336-3227.

Dn. Tom Leonard is a former teacher at U of D Jesuit High School as well as at Detroit Catholic Central High School. The Deacon holds M.A. Degrees in Sacred Theology and Philosophy.
