This year, our Mission Mass focused on the Mass itself.  Each Tuesday we delved into the scriptural, theological, and historical reasons we do everything we do at Mass.  If you missed the mission but would still like the opportunity to have the Mass come alive every Sunday, you can fing recording of all the sermons on our homilies page: JUST CLICK HERE!
