WOMEN AND THE WORD

This liturgical experience is sponsored by Sabbath Retreats and is an opportunity for people to be exposed to the perspective a woman brings to the Word of God where they worship each weekend and a preparation of mind and heart for the proclamation of the Word at the following weekend's Eucharist.

We will be providing this opportunity during Advent this year, on Wednesday, November 29, December 6 and December 13 at 7:00 pm in the church.  Each celebration includes the same hymns and prayers of a Sunday Liturgy of the Word and ends with a shared reflection after the homily.  The preachers observe a common rubric.  Our lectors and musicians will participate in the Word services as well. 

According to our current Catholic Church's liturgical teaching and law, a homily at Mass is by definition that which is proclaimed by an ordained minister after the gospel.  BUT PREACHING IS NOT RESTRICTED TO MEN!  A woman's perspective on Scripture readings can be offered at other liturgical gatherings, such as Word Services. 

There will be a different woman preaching at each of the three weeks of celebrations.  Sr. Jeanne Cmolik will preach on November 29, Lisa Frey will preach on December 6 and Laurie Jurecki will preach on December 13.  We hope you will come and participate in the Word services and hear the wisdom of some women preachers.
