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).
Grief Support Group
A support group for those who have lost a loved one to the disease of addiction is now available. The group meets every first and third Monday of the month. It is held at Saint Louise in the LeGras Conference Room starting at 7:00pm. The group is facilitated by a certified counselor, Adrian Miller, MSCP, NCC. This opportunity provides those who have lost a loved one a safe place to share and listen to others who are experiencing this as well. If you have questions or would like more information please contact Adrian at 412-609-4437.
This grief support group is sponsored by the Substance Addiction Ministry (SAM) of the Pittsburgh Diocese. It is open to all persons regardless of their faith or religion.
