a video program by Bishop Robert Barron, study led by Mike Brown, director of adult education

Course Overview - In this new six-part series, we will walk through the liturgy and be transformed through Bishop Barron’s compelling insights into this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.  See how the Mass brings us out of our fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and how we are joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Eucharist.

The Mass will show us how to participate fully, actively, and consciously in the source and summit of our Christian life.  Bishop Barron’s conversational, engaging style and his masterful use of media make him a most effective communicator.  You will gain a richer appreciation of the eucharistic celebration through his message.
