Advanced Course in Theology: Historical Development of the Mass
210 South Wellwood Avenue
This course will trace the historical development of the Mass from its institution at the Last Supper down to our present day. We will look at relevant texts of the Mass to understand what it means to say “the Church makes the Eucharist and the Eucharist makes the Church” at different historical periods. We will see how the liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council restored a patristic understanding of the Eucharist and how the post-Vatican II liturgy is in direct continuity with the authentic whole tradition, restoring a more integrated connection between the theology of the Eucharist and the theology of the Church. Advanced credit is available for those who attend at least 8 out of the 10 hours (4 out of the 5 sessions).
Course dates: Thursdays, March 6, 13, 20, 27 and April 10, 7:30–9:30 p.m.
Location: Our Lady of Perpetual Help R.C. Church, 210 S. Wellwood Avenue, Lindenhurst, NY 11757.
