FAQ - Holy Redeemer has a traditional Roman Catholic Mass that lasts about an hour on Sundays and for thirty minutes during the weekdays. Following are a couple of frequently asked questions along with answers about the Mass.

  • Q. Why can't non-Catholics take communion in the Catholic Church? A. As Catholics, we believe that the celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of our oneness in faith, life and worship. We pray in each Mass for the time that we all may be one and the sharing of this sacrament will then be possible. The Catechism of the Catholic Church reflects on this teaching.
  • Q. May I participate in other parts of the Mass? A. You may as your comfort level permits. It is permissible to stand, kneel, sit and respond as others do and as your conscience dictates.
