What’s with the Smells and the Bells at Mass?

Who: Catholics of every age, their families & friends
What: 6 PM Mass & Coffee Hour
When: NEXT WEEKEND May 7th
Where: St. Patrick’s Parish, Stoneham
Why: Our faith is a gift; let’s open it together!

Even faithful Catholics who attend Mass regularly don’t always understand the significance of the gestures, prayers, and sacred objects used during the liturgy.  If you’ve ever wondered why Mass feels like a workout (stand, sit, stand, kneel!) and why we burn incense & ring the bells, please join us for a Teaching Mass.

On Sunday  May 7th at 6PM Fr. Matt Williams, charismatic teacher and Director of Faith Formation for Youth and Young Adults, will celebrate Mass here  St. Patrick’s Parish. Fr. Matt is known for his dynamic preaching in Lift Ministries, and he will help us to discover how Catholics use all five senses to experience God in worship.  You will leave with a greater appreciation of why do we do what we do at Mass. Q&A with refreshments to follow in Our Lady of Providence Hall. Sponsored by St. Patrick’s Religious Education and the Archdiocesan Office of Lifelong Faith Formation.  All are welcome!  For more information contact Anne Dooley at stpatreled@parishmail.com
