Fr. Adam’s Articles
During Advent, we will be having an extra Mass at 6 p.m. on Sunday. I will be offering a series of homilies on the four Marian Dogmas of the Church at these Sunday Evening Masses. The order of the Dogmas covered will be:
December 3rd: The Perpetual Virginity of Mary
December 10th: The Immaculate Conception
December 17th: The Assumption
December 24th (at 6:30 p.m.): Mother of God.
Since the birth of Christ, theology concerning Mary has been hotly debated and often contested. The debates have flared up at certain times during our history, especially by our separated brethren who follow in the traditions of the Protestant movement. Perhaps some of you have friends or family who have asked questions about Mary, and haven’t been able to give a response. These homilies are introductions to the four Dogmas, that is, the four declared teachings of the Church that are Divinely revealed and ought to be held by all faithful. The homilies will give a few talking points for you to use should someone ask you about Mary.
All are welcome to attend.
These Masses will also begin to gauge the desire of St. Luke’s parishioners for a Sunday Evening Mass with themed homily series; depending on the response, we may do this again in the near future!
"On another note, Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the feasibility study online survey. If you haven't had a chance to do so, please go to our website and follow the link that says, "Take the St. Luke's Survey Here". We look forward to building in the future, and we need everyone to share their thoughts about our current and upcoming projects."
