Plan on joining us on Thursday, May 13th (Ascension Thursday) at 7:00PM to pray a “Living Rosary” together. We pray for the conversion of heart for all those who advocate or promote abortion in our country. The "Living Rosary" is prayed with each person that participates praying the first half of either an "Our Father" (in English) or a "Hail Mary" in the language of their choice. Participants sit in the church pews forming a "Living Rosary". Each participant has a candle that is lighted as each "bead" is prayed.
Eucharistic Healing Service
Eucharistic Healing Service Saturday, May 22nd, immediately following the 8:45AM Mass. This beautiful service will allow individuals who are in need of healing--whether it be spiritual, physical, psychological or emotional-- to place themselves in the presence of our Eucharistic Lord and to be blessed with the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance, while joining their prayers with those of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Outdoor Stations of the Cross
