What can I expect at Mass?

We're a Catholic church, so if you have ever been to Mass before you'll recognize the liturgy and prayers. As Catholics, we believe using our whole bodies helps us pray more fully; at different times we stand, sit, and kneel. Fr. Woody, our music teams, and other volunteers lead us as we pray together and sing together. Everyone is invited to participate in the prayers, songs, and movements as they are able! You'll hear readings from the Bible, reflections on how those scriptures help us grow in our relationship with Christ today, a mix of traditional and modern Christian hymns, and prayers for our needs and those of the world. Every Mass includes communion, and all Catholics who have prepared themselves are welcome to receive. Please remain standing until all have had the opportunity to receive communion. If you aren't receiving communion, we invite you to pray for peace in our world and Christian unity.

You can find the words to our prayers and songs in our Breaking Bread hymnals in the pews. At the Sunday 5pm Mass, be sure to grab a worship aid at the entrances of the church so you can follow along with the songs.
