Divine Mercy Prayer Group

The Lord appeared to St. Faustina many times during her life on earth to instruct her regarding His Divine Mercy. In turn, St. Faustina spread the great news of God’s mercy and love throughout the world.

First Wednesday of every month
starting at 6:00pm
in the Church with Holy Mass at 7:00pm.

We also meet EVERY Wednesday at 3:00pm in the Church. We worship the Lord and honor our Blessed Mother and St. Faustina by reciting the Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. We eagerly extend this invitation to you to join us.

Padre Pio Prayer Group

The Padre Pio Prayer Group celebrates Mass, prayers and benediction on the first Wednesday of the month from 7pm to 9pm. Our vision is to introduce a special devotion to St. Pio and his powerful intercession in response to prayers for healing. Our prayer group has been officially approved by the Vatican and San Giovanni Rotondo and has 1st class Padre Pio relics which are displayed during Masses.

Our Padre Pio ministry has held many fund raisers for the homeless, people in need, educational scholarships, and for seminary applicants of our community. Also, some donations have been brought directly by Nancy to the hospital of San Giovanni Rotondo for the sick. Our prayer group has also raised money for the building fund for St. Bernard of Clairvaux.

It is the power of our uniting in the offering of the Mass and in the special devotions which will fulfill the purpose of our formation into this Prayer Group. Like all of life's wonderful blessings, Padre Pio is to be shared. Relatives and friends are always welcome to join the devotional services and everyone is encouraged to introduce other Catholics to the Padre Pio Prayer Group.

Our monthly Mass with benediction & rosary will now be on the:
FIRST MONDAY OF THE MONTH AT 7:00 PM
IN THE CHURCH (UNLESS IT'S A HOLIDAY...THEN THE MEETING WILL TAKE PLACE THE FOLLOWING MONDAY

"Pray, pray to the Lord with me, because the whole world needs prayer. And every day, when your heart especially feels the loneliness of life, pray. Pray to the Lord, because even God needs our prayers." - St. Pio of Pietrelcina
