St. Mary Parish in Huntley is next host for Lecture Series

posted Oct 2, 2013, 8:58 PM by Jose Bermudez   [ updated Oct 2, 2013, 8:59 PM ]

Msgr. James Moroney, nationally known expert and speaker on liturgical matters, will be the next speaker in Bishop Malloy’s Year of Faith Lecture Series, hosted by St. Mary Parish.

Msgr. Moroney will provide a lively look at the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy in his topic, Sacrosanctum Concilium – the Unfinished Agenda. Sacrosanctum Concilium is one of the Constitutions of the Second Vatican Council focused on achieving greater participation in the liturgy of the church by the laity. Msgr. Moroney’s talk will examine how that document affects us today.

Msgr. Moroney has been a priest of the Diocese of Worcester, Mass., since 1980, and is currently Rector of St. John Seminary in Brighton, Mass. He has been a professor of Sacred Liturgy and served on the Vox Clara Committee, an international committee advising the Vatican on the English Translation of the Liturgy. He is an author and host of “The New and Eternal Word” program on the CatholicTV Network.

The public is invited.

WHEN: Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013
TIME: Begins at 6:30 p.m. with prayer led by Bishop David J. Malloy
Evening concludes at 8 p.m. with refreshments

Fortnight for Freedom

posted Jun 20, 2013, 1:09 PM by StTherese Parish   [ updated Jun 20, 2013, 1:10 PM ]

The "Fortnight for Freedom" begins Friday -- are you ready?

 

The two-week period beginning June 21 and running through July 4 echoes an observance held last summer to protest the mandate handed down by the federal Department of Health and Human Services requiring all employers to offer insurance coverage of abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization. The mandate went into effect on Aug. 1, 2012 for most employers, and will be implemented for religious organizations on Aug. 1, 2013.
