Traditional Latin Mass at Canadian College

Traditional Latin Mass at Redeemer Pacific College

with Fr.Ashley

At Redeemer Pacific College, while studying imaginative literature, philosophy, theology, history, science, the arts and various media, students are taught how to engage with the Church’s tradition, and with the entire heritage of western civilization, in order to evaluate what human beings in preceding generations have counted as wisdom, and in an endeavor to “sift all things and hold fast to what is good” (1 Thess 5:21). Yet, at Redeemer Pacific, our attention is not just on the past and on what preceding generations have taught. We believe that it is essential that students examine everything they have received from the Catholic tradition in such a way as to make that inheritance their own.
As Pope Benedict XVI said in Deus Caritas Est, “Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.” Hence, a Catholic educational institution is first and foremost a “place to encounter the living God who in Jesus Christ reveals his transforming love and truth.” A Christianity that is a lived experience of all that is beautiful, good, and true, touches the deepest longing of our hearts, and can transform and make fruitful our lives. Hence, Redeemer Pacific College’s mission is to help all whom we meet develop a consciousness of Christ’s presence in the here and now, so that, transformed, we can be faithful to the Church’s mission in service to the Gospel.
