Learning the Latin Mass: Introduction to the Holy Mass
THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS:
Toward a deeper understanding of the Extraordinary Form of the Holy Mass
PRESENTATIONS ON THE HOLY SACRIFICE OF THE MASS
Since our arrival at Saint Luke the Evangelist, the Oratory of Ss. Gregory and Augustine has continued to welcome new members, some familiar with the Extraordinary Form and some who are new to the Traditional Sacraments.
New and old alike are invited to three consecutive evenings to assist all the faithful in coming to a deeper understanding of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The purpose of these three evenings is to explain the structure and movement of the Mass; provide a better understanding of the theology of Holy Mass; assist in better using the Edmund Campion Missal in the pews or your own hand missal. These talks serve as an introduction for those new to the celebration of the Extraordinary Form and a refresher to those who have been parishioners of the Oratory for years. Adults 18 and over are encouraged to attend these evenings.

“First of all, we must never forget that the Mass is a Sacrifice, an act by which the Church gives to Almighty God, officially and in the name of all, worship of the highest kind, adoration or Latria, which is due to Him alone, in virtue of the supreme excellence of His divine Being from which everything comes and to which everything must return. Therefore, the Mass is offered only to the three Persons of the Blessed Trinity.” (from the St. Andrew Daily Missal)
