Ministries


PRAYER BLANKET MINISTRY IS MADE UP OF A VERY DEDICATED GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO CREATE BLANKETS OF ALL SIZES TO GIVE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE IN NEED OF LOVE, PRAYERS AND COMFORT DURING A DIFFICULT PERIOD IN THEIR LIVES. EACH BLANKET IS PRAYED OVER THROUGHOUT IT’S CONSTRUCTION AND HAS BEEN BLESSED, FURTHER ENCOMPASSING THE SPIRITUAL PRESENCE OF JESUS. THE GROUP WILL MEET ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3, WITH LUNCH FROM 12:00-1:00 AND THE MEETING FROM 1:00-3:30 P.M.

FUTURE EVENTS INCLUDE THINGS LIKE A SPIRITUAL ADOPTION PROGRAM (ADOPT AND PRAY FOR THE BABY, FOLLOW THE BABY’S DEVELOPMENT, HAVE A BABY SHOWER, ETC.) CAROLING AT A NURSING HOME AND MUCH MORE! “ONLY WITH PRAYER – PRAYER THAT STORMS THE HEAVENS FOR JUSTICE AND MERCY, PRAYER THAT CLEANSES OUR HEARTS AND SOULS – WILL THE CULTURE OF DEATH THAT SURROUNDS US TODAY BE REPLACED WITH A CULTURE OF LIFE.”

Eucharistic Adoration
Our Parish has Eucharistic Adoration on Fridays in the Daily Mass chapel. At the end of 8:00am morning Mass the Eucharist remains exposed on the Altar. Benediction is celebrated at 3pm. For security reasons the front doors of the Church are not opened. Please enter by the back door of the connector at the bottom of the ramp. In May and October when we are having Marian devotions, Adoration ends with the devotions.

 

Marian Devotions in May & October
In Marian months of May and October we have Marian devotions in the main Church. Devotions are celebrated bilingually within the context of Adoration and Benediction. More information can be found in the weekly bulletin.

 

The Word Among Us
Each month we have at the back of the Church a publication titled “The Word Among Us.” This publication gives the citation of the daily readings followed by a brief reflection.

Advent & Lent
Special spiritual programs and devotions are provided during the seasons of Advent & Lent. Please see the weekly bulletin for the days and times of these programs.

Bible Study with Father Johnson on Saturday, April 2nd at 6:30 P.M. in the parish hall will focus on the readings from the Second Sunday of Easter or Sunday of Divine Mercy: Acts of the Apostles 5:12-16, the Book of Revelation 1:9-11a, 12-13, 17-19 and the Gospel according to Saint John 20:19-31.
