The meetings consist of praying the Rosary, praise and worship, invocation of the Holy Spirit, Bible readings and reflections, witnessing, and ending with the Lord's Prayer.

AMERICAN'S FINEST HOUR
"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. Since January 2016, parishioners and visitors have joined many other churches in the nation by opening our doors for one hour a week to plead with Almighty God to save our country. This prayer service is held every Tuesday at 12:00 noon in Our Lady's Chapel starting on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.

LEGION OF MARY
The Legion of Mary, founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 1921, is a worldwide apostolic organization of lay people in the church. The Legion has a balanced program of prayer and service. The objective of the Legion is to give glory to God through the guidance of the Virgin Mary. It gives its members the opportunity to do something positive for the church while deepening their spiritual lives and strengthening their Catholic faith. Works include weekly meetings to pray the rosary and plan the apostolic work of coming week including evangelization, parish visitation projects, youth work, and other spiritual needs of the parish and community. Any Catholic who would like to draw closer to Jesus and His Mother Mary is welcome to give it a try. Our meetings are on Saturdays at 2:00 pm in the Community Room in the Parish Hall.
MARIAN MOVEMENT OF PRIESTS ROSARY CENACLE
The Marian Movement of Priests Rosary Cenacle is devoted to honoring the Blessed Mother and promoting unity within the Catholic Church, in particular, obedience to the divine authority of our Holy Father. The MMP is "a movement," "a spirit," not an organization with meetings, a ministry head, and so on. The Blessed Virgin Mary alone is its leader; priests are its primary members, but all lay persons are welcome to pray the Rosary for priests throughout the world. Our Cenacle leads the Rosary every Tuesday morning at 8:30 am after the 8:00 am Mass in Our Lady's Chapel. For spiritual nourishment, encouragement, and understanding of this prayer group, read the book To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons.
PADRE PIO PRAYER GROUP
St. Pio of Pietrelcina was a Capuchin Franciscan priest for 50 years. He bore the wounds of Christ and was canonized on June 16, 2002, by Pope John Paul II.

His spiritual prayer groups are worldwide and number over 200,000. They are united to serve Christ through the love that the Lord and Padre Pio inspire. This ministry gathers on the second Saturday of the month to pray the Rosary; there is also a special Mass in Our Lady's Chapel. For dates and times, please check the bulletin.

Volunteers make Rosaries the second Tuesday of each month. These rosaries are made available to residents in local nursing homes, to students in our Religious Education program, and to parishioners and visitors who can find them in the narthexes of the church. We also send our rosaries missions both in the United States and abroad. If you have a broken rosary that you want repaired, we can teach you how to fix it. We meet the second Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm in the Parish Hall.
