Mass: What to Expect

If you have never been to Mass before, or if you haven’t gone in a long time, we are excited to have you join us as we celebrate and worship together.

We understand that it may feel foreign at first, and that some parts might seem confusing. The last thing we would want is for you to feel unwelcome during the service, so we have created a little guide for you to help you understand the liturgy a little better.
