Free Lenten Series

Feb 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - Mar 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm


Praying the Mass – A Lenten Series for Adults at St. John Paul II High School


‘Praying the Mass: A Walk Through the Sacred Liturgy’ is a five-week Lenten series designed to help you enter more deeply into full, conscious, and actual participation in the Holy Mass!


What does ‘liturgy’ mean? Why do we sit, stand, kneel, bow, pray, sing, hear bells, smell incense, and see strange vestments and decorations? What are the parts of the Mass and what is the meaning behind the various words, symbols, and gestures?


The series was developed and will be taught by Kino Instructor and St. John Paul II High School History and Religion teacher, Will Wright. Will earned a master’s degree from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Theology and Christian Ministry. The series will be presented as a five-week series on Tuesday nights during Lent. Come all five evenings or to individual sessions as you are able! All who are interested in attending are more than welcome!


The cost is free. And if you are an educator, we can offer up to five hours of Kino teacher recertification hours (depending on your attendance). This series is a great way to know what is going on better at Holy Mass and allow the sights, sounds, and smells to come alive with deeper meaning! I hope you will join us!
