Altaration: Youth Study of the Mass

Teens today are surrounded by distractions: music fills their ear buds, while tweets and posts are constantly checked and updated. They have been conditioned to fill any void or silent moment with noise and stimulation. So instilling an appreciation and enthusiasm for the Mass can be a challenge. Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed is a new five-part study on the Mass for teens, grades 8-12, that features powerful cinematography, inspiring presenters, and engaging workbook resources. Altaration uses humor, stories, and small group discussion to capture your teen's attention and instill them a deep and lasting love for the Mass.

Joins us for Altaration at Holy Cross in the library of St. John Paull II School beginning June 13 at 6:30 PM, led by Kyle Etzel, our summer seminarian. There's no cost to participate!

Dates: Wednesdays - June 13, 20, 27, July 18, 25

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM in the library at Holy Cross (by Kolbe Hall)

For any questions regarding Altaration, please call the parish office and ask for Kyle.
