Gold Masses are for Catholics who are or have been involved with science, including scientists, retired or former scientists, science teachers at any level, science graduate students and undergraduate science majors, as well as all of those with an interest in science, formal or informal.
St. Albert the Great was a Dominican, born around 1206, noted for his great works in the natural sciences. Among his students were St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Albert is the patron saint of scientists.
Our guest homilist will be Rev. Dr. Thomas Davenport, O.P. Fr Davenport studied physics at the California Institute of Technology and went on to earn a PhD in physics from Stanford University, before following his vocation to be a Dominican priest.
There will be a reception following the Mass. All are very welcome to attend.
