Catechetical Institute Day All are welcome and encouraged to
join us for the Catechetical Institute Day that is being held on
Saturday, February 22nd at St. Joseph's in Grand Rapids. Through a
generous CREED grant we are able to bring Bill Keimig in to the
diocese for this day of formation to learn more about how we can
better utilize the Catechetical Institute in our parishes! Last
year we became a partnering diocese with the CI, which allows us
access to fantastic formation in the areas of catechesis,
evangelization, youth ministry, RCIA, and more throughout the
entire year. This day will be fruitful for those who are both
working/volunteering in parishes, as well as those who are simply
interested in learning more about their faith! There is no cost for
participants, but we ask that you register at
www.dioceseduluth.org/Catec-leaders. This event is sponsored by the
diocesan Office of Catechesis.

WHY DO WE DO THAT? CATHOLIC LIFE EXPLAINED
Why do priests wear vestments? Do they have a special
Answer: Vestments are clothes worn for a specific purpose.
Priests will joke that they cover a thousand flaws. But our own
manner of dress often corresponds to what we do. We dress up for
special occasions, and for
special guests. We wear certain clothes for golf, for outdoor
activities, and years ago, we even had our “Sunday best” clothes we
wore just for Church.
Vestments are much the same, and each one has a meaning. The alb
is a reminder of the baptismal
garment. The stole is a symbol of ordained ministry and
authority within the Church. The chasuble reminds us that we are on
a pilgrimage of faith,
passing through this life towards heaven. Priests wear vestments
for two basic reasons. First, they draw attention to the importance
of the act of worship. The color of the vestments indicates the
season of the year or the feast being celebrated. Secondly,
vestments draw attention to what the priest does, rather than who
he is. In the
celebration of the Mass, the focus is on what we do together, on
our common unity, and on the mystery
and person of Christ.
