Ecclesiastical Latin refers to the pronunciation and usages of Latin by the Catholic Church.

A group of parishioners has approached the parish about the possibility of offering Mass in the Extraordinary Form.  As part of the discernment about whether there is a sustainable community for such a Mass, we are offering a Summer course in Latin that would prepare those who might wish to celebrate the Liturgy in this form to do so with prayerful understanding.  The text to be used will be “A Primer for Ecclesiastical Latin,” additionally each student will need a concise Latin/English dictionary and a Latin-English Booklet Missal.

In his recent exhortation on the Call to Holiness, Pope Francis placed the Beatitudes at the heart of his document.  Though phrased in simple words, these brief statements of Jesus carry profound meanings.  What do they have to do with holiness?  How do we resolve their seeming contradictions?  Why do Matthew and Luke offer different versions?  What do the words themselves actually mean?  How can we pray with them so that they bear fruit in our lives?  This course will examine these questions!
