The Holy Mass is the public prayer of the Church, the place where we are made to be Church and exercise the dignity of making Christ in his Pascal Mystery present for one another and for the world.
The dedication of Masses (the Mass Intention) is a tradition that has remained constant since the primitive age of Christianity. A Mass Intention is the highest form of intercessory prayer that a Christian can offer. When a priest celebrates a Mass for a special intention, he is offering the celebration of the Eucharist for a particular person (or intention), who then receives the graces of that Mass. Individuals may request a priest to offer Mass for a loved one for various reasons, such as
- The repose of one who has died
- Celebrations of occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries
- Thanksgiving for graces received
- For one in physical or spiritual trouble
Weekly Bulletin Intercessions
Each week a list of those in need of prayers are listed in the bulletin. If you know of someone sick or home bound and in need of prayer support, please contact Diane in the parish office to have them added to the list so that we may all pray together as a parish. We will generally rotate a name off of the list after three weeks. Please inform us if a name can be removed before that time.
At present the parish is blessed with ninety-four regular adorers and twenty-six substitutes. All are welcome to add themselves to their number. The chapel is well-stocked with devotional helps such as rosaries, copies of the sacred scriptures, and guides to mental prayer and the art of Eucharistic Adoration.
Monday- Friday 8:00 AM- 8:00PM
Saturday- 9:15 AM to 4:00 PM
Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry began in May of 2007. Since that time, over six-hundred and fifty handmade prayer shawls have been give to parishioners and friends in need of prayers and comfort. Shawls are crafted with prayers and are blessed by one of our priests before they are presented. The ministry meets on the last Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm in the Library at the Holy Cross Campus. All skill levels are welcome.
To request a prayer shawl, please contact the sacristan after mass. For more information or if you have any questions please contact the Parish Office.
