Our Lady of the Rosary Novena: Sept. 28 – Oct. 6


This Novena prayer is to prayed for 9 days from September 28 through October 6.

“Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, in these times of such brazen impiety, show your power with the signs of your former victories. Look with mercy on the Church of your Son, on His Vicar on earth, and on all the clergy and laity, who are sorely oppressed in this mighty conflict. Powerful vanquisher of all heresies, hasten the hour of mercy, even though the hour of God’s justice is every day provoked by the countless sins of men. As I kneel before you in prayer, obtain for me my requests (mention your intentions). Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us. (Say one: Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be.) AMEN”

Novena Prayer will be recited after the 7AM Rosary and before the 7:30AM Mass (Monday through Saturday); and after the 6PM Rosary and before the 6:30PM Mass (Monday through Friday).

Saint Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

Volunteer Collection Counters Wanted

We still need a few volunteers to help record our weekly collections, to be done on Sunday and/or Monday morning. I am trying to re-establish four weekly teams, whereby volunteers would only need to commit to once-a-month duty. If you are willing to assist us, please contact me at the office, 298-0261.
