For over thirty years the Needy Family Fund, under the leadership of Sister Paulanne, has answered the call of those in our parish and community who are in ﬁnancial crisis.
Immaculate Conception Novena
The Immaculate Conception Novena 11/29 – 12/8
The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 is a Holy Day of Obligation. It is a day for us to reflect on Mary’s life and how God chose her to be our “model of holiness.” The yes of Mary at the Annunciation, the culmination of the Immaculate Conception, undoes the disobedience of Eden and makes paradise a possibility for us once again (from The Magnificat).
- Prepare with 9 days of prayer and petition: Thursday, November 29 through Friday, December 7
- The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saturday, December 8; Masses at 6:30, 8:20, 12:15 ; Friday, December 7, Vigil at 7:00 pm.
Three beautiful ways to pray…
- Join the Holy Rosary Group every day after 8:30 am Mass in the Lady Chapel from 11/29 – 12/8 for Novena prayers and the Holy Rosary
- Get a Novena prayer booklet from the Lady Chapel and pray on your own or with your family
- Go to www.praymorenovenas.com/immaculate-conception-novena/ to sign up for a daily email that includes prayers for the day, as well video/audio links so you can listen to the prayers
Come spend time with the Lord in Eucharistic Adoration every Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in the Lady Chapel. He is waiting for you there!
