Parts of the Mass

Sunday liturgy has a rhythmic structure that is designed to welcome and unite us, immerse us in our treasured stories, bond and transform us in a sacred meal, and send us on a mission. What are the parts comprised of and how does full, active, and conscious participation in them inspire authentic Christian living?

Our Call to Worship

Worship is the way that we acknowledge and give thanks for what is most important in our lives. Prayer and worship link the physical world with the spiritual world. This is why we must place the highest priority on worshiping God with each other every week. We need to do it as best we can while remaining constantly aware that our worship is not perfect, and so we will change it from time to time to make it more perfect. These resources were created during the revision of the Roman Missal in 2011 but can be easily adapted to use as lessons on worship.
