About the Mass

The Mass is the summit towards which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows." The Mass is the source and summit of Catholic life. (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy - Article 10)

Information about the Order of the Mass, Fasting and Abstinence and Items Used at Mass can be found at the website of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

    In an attempt to try to be more inclusive of those who are afflicted with Celiac Spruce disease or some form of gluten intolerance, low-gluten hosts are available at the Sunday Masses. These hosts are not gluten- free, though the level is extremely low (less than twenty parts per million [<20 ppm]) and are therefore in strict adherence to Canon Law.

    If you are intolerant of gluten and would like to receive one of these hosts, the priest will have them available in his ciborium. Get into his line at the Communion procession and indicate this fact when you receive. The hosts are placed in a special container to help minimize cross contamination.

    Vespers, also called Evening Prayer, is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus’ command to “pray always” (Luke 18:1). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.

    The Liturgy of the Hours includes several specified times of prayer. The most important times, called the “hinge hours,” are Morning Prayer (which takes place upon rising) and Evening Prayer (which takes place as dusk begins to fall).

    Bishops, priests, deacons, and many men and women in consecrated life pray the Liturgy of the Hours each day. Their work is organized around this prayer, keeping God always at the center of their days. Lay people are encouraged to pray the Liturgy of the Hours as well, especially Morning and Evening Prayer.

    Evening Prayer gives thanks for the day just past and makes an evening sacrifice of praise to God.

The liturgy is the privileged means through which the baptized are continually immersed into the reality of the living God through Christ’s paschal mystery in the power of the Holy Spirit in the midst of the communion of the church and in our world in a unique and yet provisional way through the use of human faculties of mind, heart, will and imagination as experienced through human speech, gesture, movement and silence by means of the things creation and of human manufacture in order to be shaped and formed by what we experience to enable us to live lives more fully converted to the gospel and what the liturgy enacts in our world, until liturgy and sacraments cease and what we experience here is made full, real and complete in the kingdom of heaven.
