Altaration: The Mystery of The Mass Revealed

By Mark Hart

The Mass as Teens Have Never Seen it Before

Altaration addresses head-on one of the biggest problems we all face: how do we get Catholic teens to appreciate the awesome beauty and mystery of the Mass…and to actually look forward to attending and participating?

Through a unique learning experience, including powerful cinematography and workbook resources, teens will come to see the Mass and the priesthood in a dramatically new way. Altaration is designed to stir thought, create conversation, dispel myths, and inspire young souls to a deep and lasting love for the Mass. The goal of Altaration is not to fill teens’ heads with information but to pierce their hearts with transformation.

After experiencing the “why” behind the “what” of the Mass, Catholic teens will…

  • Enter prepared,
  • Participate with sincerity,
  • And exit with purpose!
