Mass parts are topic of Lenten series

Irondequoit Senior Ministries is sponsoring a Lenten series of talks about parts of the Mass. The seventh-annual series is titled “The Church at Prayer — A Study of the Mass,” and it will explore how Catholics are welcomed and nourished by the word and bread of Christ. The talks will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Fridays through April 3 at Christ the King Church, 445 Kings Highway, Irondequoit.

Copresenters are Father Robert Kennedy and Joan Workmaster, who have taught at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry. The first part in the five-part series took place March 6, during which Father Kennedy and Workmaster explained the significance of an assembly of people in celebration of their faith and love for God.

The remaining talks in the series are:

* March 13: “Hearing God’s Word,” which offers an understanding of the liturgical Scripture readings and their relevance in daily lives.

* March 20: “Giving Thanks and Praise.”

* March 27: “Dining with the Lord,” which explains the celebration of the Eucharist.

* April 3: “Going Forth in Peace.”

Father Sebastian Falcone, professor of New Testament at St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry, will present reflections on the Eucharist based on the writings of St. Paul to the evangelists from 2 to 3:15 p.m. Monday, March 23, at the St. Ann Community Chapel, 1500 Portland Ave., Rochester. The talk will be followed by Mass at 3:45 concelebrated in the chapel by Father Falcone and Father Peter Bayer.

There is no admission for the talks in the series. The Christ the King Boy Scouts will host a fish dinner in the Christ the King Parish Center immediately following the Friday talks. The dinner is $8.50 adults, $8 seniors/kids and $4 for grilled cheese.
