Saint Pascal News and Events
Meaning of the Mass - Tuesdays in October, 2017
“Why do we do the things we do at Mass? Why is it that we stand and sit and kneel at the various parts of the Mass? How is the Mass we celebrate today connected to the Mass of the early Christians and most importantly to the Last Supper? What are the Jewish origins of the Mass? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions or maybe other ones as well, please join Father Elliott in a five part series on the Meaning of the Mass. Beginning Tuesday, October 3rd at 7:30 PM in Room 100 we will walk through the various parts of the Mass and talk about why we do the things we do. These sessions will take place on each Tuesday in October: October 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31. Please consider joining us for either some or all of these talks and learn a bit more about our Catholic faith.”

Eucharistic Adoration - Thursdays
Each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saint Pascal hosts the place for quiet reflection - Eucharistic Adoration in Church. The purpose of Eucharistic Adoration is to give every Catholic an opportunity to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. Everyone is welcome and invited to spend some time on Thursdays for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or more if so desired. It calms one’s soul, brings peace to one’s heart and deepens one’s relationship with the Lord. Making time with Jesus may be the gift you can give yourself.
