The Meaning and Prayers of the Mass: Church of Our Saviour

A series of two free lectures on "The Meaning and Prayers of the Mass" will be presented in the Undercroft of the Church of Our Saviour on consecutive Saturdays, January 14 and 21 from 1:30-2:30 PM.

Thomas Vaniotis will use the texts of the new translation of the Roman Missal to explore the historical, spiritual, and theological content of the prayers of the Mass as a guide to greater understanding and deeper participation. The first lecture will focus on the Liturgy of the Word, the second on the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Thomas Vaniotis is one of the Masters of Ceremonies overseeing the altar servers at liturgies at the Church of Our Saviour and is a parish catechist. He studied music, philosophy, and medieval studies at the University of Rochester.

The Church of Our Saviour is located at 59 Park Avenue at the corner of East 38th Street, two blocks south of Grand Central Terminal in New York City. The parish website is
