Bringing People Back to Mass

The Catechetical Institute of Franciscan University invites you to take part this Lent in a brand new – and completely free – series by Dr. Scott Hahn and Kimberly Hahn focused on something we are all concerned about in this time: bringing as many people back to the Mass as possible.  This new study, called Parousia: The Bible and the Mass, is aimed at connecting the dots for Catholics and helping open our eyes to the beauty and wonder of the Mass – to deepen our love and appreciation for the Eucharist, showing how the Mass enables our whole faith to make sense. Sign up to watch for free – all ten episodes – and please share this with your friends, family, and parish.
