Why does the priest at Resurrection face away from the people during part of the Mass?

This is called "Ad Orientem." What that means is that at times during the Mass, especially during the Eucharistic Prayer, the priest and the people face in the same direction, toward the “Liturgical East.” Learn more about Ad Orientem here.


At Resurrection, why is "healing" mentioned so often?

In a talk before the Mass for Healing of the Family Tree, on March, 24, 2018, Fr. Steve Mattson explained the dynamics behind "Healing of the Whole Person," using Dr. Bob Schuchts' model. The talk explains how we are initially wounded and hurt in life and how our persistent sin arises from those wounds. Fr. Steve then went on to explain how the Lord can break into our suffering and sin and heal us, thus bringing about freedom in our lives, which in turn gives us the opportunity to grow in our relationship with the Lord and pursue holiness. Listen to the talk by Fr. Steve. Learn more about the Healing Ministry at Resurrection.
