          As Catholics, the Mass is the centre of our faith. We know the responses and gestures but do you know what it means? The Basilica of Our Lady will host a DVD series based on the New Translation of the Mass by Edward Sri (Ascension Press) that will explain their profound significance to help us better understand the Mass. Come and learn the biblical background to the words, prayers and gestures and gain helpful insights to get the most out of Mass. Discover how the Mass is a true representation of Christ’s redeeming sacrifice on the Cross. Explore three key aspects of the Mass as Sacrifice, Real Presence and Holy Communion. Each session will include a DVD presentation and group discussion. Bring your Bible and a copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church if possible. The DVD series is based on the Revised Standard Version – Catholic edition of the Bible. Registration is limited to 30 participants so register early at the parish office 519-824-3951. This will be offered in the Newstead Room March 12th, 19th, 26th from 1-3p.m. at a cost of $5.
