Contemplative Mass

Jun 2, 2017
Contemplative Mass led by Fr. Kevin McGee will be held Friday, June 2 at 7 p.m. at St. Augustine Church, 602 Boychuk Drive, Saskatoon. The rhythm of the Contemplative Mass is a gentle, steady flow, marked by 20 minutes of silence after Communion. It is designated to allow space for reflection and recognition of the intimate presence of Christ who comes to us through scripture and the Eucharist. Silence within this form of worship can feel uncomfortable or awkward, especially when experienced for the first time. We encourage you to relax and rest in the abiding presence of God. This will be the last Contemplative mass until September. We will gather for fellowship after mass in the foyer. It would be greatly appreciated if you are attending if you would be able to bring a small dish of crackers, cheese, veggies or fruit to share. A glass of wine will be provided.
