MADISON — To prepare to enter the holy season of Lent, Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish is hosting a mini-retreat for adults, “The Mass, Welcoming the Presence of Christ,” on Saturday, March 2, 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

All adults who wish to enrich their experience at Mass are encouraged to attend and explore the liturgy as the source and summit of our Catholic faith.

Through catechesis, storytelling, Church documents, art, music, and videos, all adults will benefit from attending this day as they deepen their understanding and appreciation of the Church’s liturgy.

The retreat leaders are Michael Ruzicki and Timothy Johnston from Liturgy Training Publications in the Archdiocese of Chicago.

All adults who wish to enrich their experience at Mass are encouraged to attend and explore the liturgy as the source and summit of our Catholic faith.
