This workshop is a personal retreat experience in prayer
Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is nothing less than a close, private conversation with a Living Person Who is the risen Jesus in the Eucharist. It is about as close as we can come in this life to talking with God face to face.
PLEASE COME TO SPEND TIME WITH JESUS. You are very important to the Lord. To spend your special hour with Him, fill out the form in the bulletin and place it in the silver box in the narthex near the holy water font.
When families attend the 10:00 am Sunday Mass, their children will be invited to participate in a special children's Liturgy of the Word. This part of the Mass brings the authentic message of the Sunday readings to children on their level while adults receive the message in the traditional way.
After the Gloria, the celebrant will call the children forward. They will be escorted to the Community Room in the Parish Hall. Music, puppets, stories, and the use of sign language are used to make the Scriptures come alive for them. Children are escorted back into the church to re-join their families after the Homily.
For more information, please contact Ms. Carol Inzirillo at 335-2385.
"America's Finest Hour" is a nationwide prayer campaign designed to save America from the evil that is sweeping across our land. The list of evil is long but the most profound crimes against God and humanity are abortion, religious persecution, and the corruption of our youth. America's Finest Hour was inspired by England's Finest Hour when that nation was fighting for its survival during World War II. Hitler was about to invade when Prime Minister Winston Churchill rallied the nation to victory with his now famous battle cry: "This is our finest hour!" At that darkest moment in England's history, King George VI called the nation to 24 hours of prayer. The citizens responded and filled the churches, begging God to save England. God heard their prayers and England was miraculously saved. And now during America's darkest hour, we are asking all the churches in the nation to open their doors for one hour per week to plead with Almighty God to save our country. The November elections are fast approaching and we need to beg God to give us holy men and women who will return America to its moral foundations.
This prayer service will be held every Tuesday evening at 6:00pm in Our Lady's Chapel starting on January 19, 2016 and ending on May 24, 2016. For more information, please contact Deacon Angel Rivera at the Parish Office.
