with family prayer night

Join us on Monday evenings.

Family Prayer Night on Monday evenings offers a means for delving deeper into prayer for your Lenten journey. Come by yourself or with family and friends. All are welcome! 

During this penitential season, there are many opportunities for prayer available: the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered at 6:30 pm, Mass at 7:00. Consider coming for the Rosary before Mass or for some quiet adoration of the Blessed Sacrament after Mass. 

Come and go as you please, but come, and let the Lord lead you into a closer relationship with Him. He yearns to have a deeper relationship with you!

The late Congressman Henry Hyde, author of the Hyde Amendment, wrote: "When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I've often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness.  You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God - and a terror will rip through your soul like nothing you can imagine.  But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone.  I think there will be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world - and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement.  They will say to God, 'Spare him because he loved us,' - and God will look at you and say not, 'Did you succeed?' but 'Did you try?'"
