May is the Month of Mary
During this month, we as Catholics, are called to honor our Blessed Mother Mary. This year we celebrate the Centenary of the Apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima and will present a Spiritual Pilgrimage to Fatima in our Parish.
Each Tuesday there will be Eucharistic Adoration following the 9:00 AM Mass. At 6:30 PM there will be recitation of the Holy Rosary and Confessions with 2 priests.
At 7:30 PM there will be NOVENA DEVOTIONS and Fatima Sermon and Prayers for Healing closing with Eucharistic Benediction.
Our preachers will include:
May 2- the Fatima Apparitions- Father Daniele Vallecorsa
May 9- the Call to Prayer- Father Dennis Yurochko
May 16- the all to Penance- Father Brian Welding
May 23- Devotion to the Immaculate Heart- Father Isaac Hayweiser, OSB
May 30- Consecration to the Immaculate Heart- Deacon William Strathmann
Each week there will be a selection of Miraculous Medals and religious books for purchase. On May 30 there will be Investiture in the Miraculous Medal.
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).
