family prayer night

prepare your hearts during advent


Family Prayer Night on Monday evenings offers a rich environment for incorporating more prayer into your life! 


Think about taking one small baby step in prayer this Advent Season to prepare your hearts for the birth of the Christ Child!  Family Prayer Night schedules two hours of prayer each Monday evening.  Come for any part of the prayer evening!  Come and go as you please, and as your schedule permits!  


The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered from 6:30-6:50PM.  Praying one decade of the Rosary might appeal to you, or stay for all the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary prayed before Mass.  Mass begins at 7:00PM.  If some quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament calls to your heart, come at 7:30PM for a few minutes, or stay to pray more of the Rosary or Chaplet of Divine Mercy with us. 


We would love to have you join us! May God bless you and your families abundantly during this special Advent time!


*Check in the Parish Office for priest schedule regarding Mass and Reconciliation.


NOTE: Family Prayer Night will not be held on December 25 and January 1.

Diocesan Household Prayer of

Dedication to the Holy Family

(The Feast of the Holy Family was celebrated on December 30, 2016.)

 

Let us pray,

 

O Joseph, guardian and protector of the Holy Family,

pray for us that through the example of your holy

obedience all who dwell here may be guided in

their daily work and journey of faith.

 

O Mary, Our Mother, through you Christ made his

home with us on earth and sanctified the life of our

homes. Pray for us that we may grow in holiness by

your example of compassion and merciful love.

 

O Jesus, we set before you now our trials and joys. Look graciously upon this home,

that it be dedicated to your Holy Family in peace, faith, and the example of your

merciful love. Protect us both here and away, and

welcome those who have gone before us into

your heavenly home.

 

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.


the st. andrew christmas novena

Begins on November 30, the Feast of St. Andrew, and continues through Christmas Eve.

~To be prayed 15 times each day~


Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment in which the Son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary at midnight in Bethlehem in piercing cold.

In that hour, vouchsafed, O my God, to hear my prayer and grant my desires through the merits of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and His Most Blessed Mother.

Amen.
