In addition, there will also be a group of people who will pray the Chaplet at home or from where they are for the soul, for the family and for those praying at the bedside.

Please join us this Tuesday evening in church at 6:30pm to pray the Rosary before the Blessed Sacrament. Come to place your personal needs and those of our community and Church before the Lord, through the intercession of the Blessed Mother.
Liturgy of the Hours
Liturgy of the Hours is the official prayer of the Church and radiates from the daily sacrifice of the Eucharist to sanctify all hours of work and prayer. We gather in church at 8:30am before the Tuesday 9:00am Mass, and on Wednesday after the 9:00am Mass. Easy to follow booklets are provided. Consider joining us in prayer this week!
“I will pray to you, O Lord, you will hear my voice in the morning; I will stand before you in the morning and gaze on you” (Ps 5:45).
