Spanish ClubComments Off on Our Lady of Guadalupe Spanish Mass
On Monday, December 12, 2011, Mrs. Bodinet’s Spanish I class and Mr. McNamara’s Spanish II class will join Mr. Wescovich’s Religion III class for a Spanish Mass in the Mater Dei Chapel during period 4/5. Fr. Vince Haselhorst, former pastor at St. Augustine’s in Breese and St. Boniface in Germantown and a native of Trenton, who spent several years in Guatemala working in the diocesan sponsored mission, will be the celebrant.
The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a major festival and celebration in the Hispanic culture. Sr. Joan Stoverink, ASC, who works with Hispanic immigrants in the Damiansville area, will also be in attendance. This liturgy and the stories Fr. Vince will share will give Mater Dei students a deeper appreciation of the language and culture of the Hispanic people and a different perspective on the Mass as they experience it completely in Spanish.
