Slide thumbnailDan’s talk on the Mass is as entertaining as it is educational! With a dash of humor, he tells stories about his childhood growing up with his brother and over-protective Cuban mother—a woman with a profound faith, a heart of gold, and an iron grip—who was determined to drag her two sons to church every Sunday, even if it meant pulling them by their ears!

He’ll share his collegiate reversion to the faith which led to his love of the liturgy, his writing of the book Mass Explained, and his desire to share what he’s learned with anyone who will listen.

His talk includes mention of the lunar landing, an homage to the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and copious references to Star Wars. These seemingly incongruous topics are seamlessly integrated into an enlightening and entertaining exploration of the Mass and its parts.
