NEW SUNDAY MORNING 9AM TEACHING SERIES: Vatican II: Rupture or Continuity?

Many changes took place within the Roman Catholic Church after the Second Vatican Council, which sought dialogue with the modern world. For example, the language of the liturgy changed from Latin to the vernacular and the Church adopted a softer tone when speaking about other Christian denominations and, indeed, other religions. How should we interpret the documents of the Council that led to these changes? Do these documents represent a break with traditional doctrine or are they compatible with the perennial teachings of the Church? Join Matthew Dugandzic, Assistant Professor of Moral Theology at St. Mary's Seminary and University, and Audra Dugandzic, PhD Candidate in sociology at the University of Notre Dame, for a discussion of three of the major documents of Vatican II: Lumen Gentium (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church), Dignitatis Humanae (Declaration on Religious Freedom), and Sacrosanctum Concilium (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy).

The first session on Lumen Gentium will focus particularly on what it means for the Church of Christ to "subsist in" the Catholic Church.

The series will be as follows:

Sunday January 24: Lumen Gentium (primarily sections 1 and 2)
Sunday February 7: Dignitis Humanae
Sunday February 21: Sacrosanctum Concilium

All sessions between 9:00 am to 9:50am.

We recommend that you read these documents. They can be printed from the Vatican website. Better yet, a version of the basic 16 documents can be purchased here.

All sessions are between 9:05 am to 9:50am in the church. The undercroft will be open for families who need space to watch their younger children. We do plan to record the sessions and make them available later.

Septuagesima, or Third Sunday Before Lent

We will have an 8am Spoken Mass and the 10am Sung Mass sung. The live streamed 10am Mass will be available on our YouTube channel. The bulletin to accompany the Mass in PDF format is available in the YouTube description.

Since Baltimore City is once again limiting Mass attendance, we're providing a signup. It's not necessary for you to sign up ahead of time in order to attend Mass--this just ensures that those who sign up have a place in the event that the church becomes too full. However, we haven't yet had attendance exceed allowable limits because the safe capacity of the worship space is much greater than the size of our pews. As always during the pandemic, we ask everyone over 2 years of age to wear masks and that families to maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from each other at all times.



Candlemas: Tuesday, February 2nd at 5pm

Candlemas marks the end of the broader Christmas season, which is traditionally 40 days. This is when we celebrate Simeon's prayer proclaiming that Christ will be "a light to lighten the Gentiles" and "the glory" of God's people, Israel. The congregation holds lighted candles to emphasize this, and liturgical candles for the entire year are blessed at the altar. You may add your family prayer candles for the blessing. Also, we are planning a reception (catered by Panera) after Mass that can serve as a light dinner. As always in this time, appropriate precautions and distancing will be observed. A Mass signup will follow soon.
