Workshop for Renewal and Reflection on the Mass


During the Mass, what are we participating in? How do we participate actively, fully and consciously? What is the role of the priest and what is the role of the assembly? Why is the Mass called the source and summit of our faith? These topics and more will be considered during upcoming workshop hosted by the Diocese of Gaylord offering reflection and renewal on our participation in Mass. While the sessions are primarily for those wishing to be certified or recertified as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, all are welcome to attend and learn more about the sacredness of the Holy Mass. Attendance at any one session will fulfill the diocesan requirement for new Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and the recertification requirements for current EMsHC.

For more information, please contact the Ms. Beth Hicks, Director of Worship and Liturgy, at or (989) 705-3519.
