Charismatic Prayer Meeting

The Charismatic Prayer Group meets every Friday at 10:00am in the Parish Center on the second floor (Room 203). We praise and worship our Lord in song and are led by the charismatic gifts of the Holy Spirit. We conclude with a Rosary offered for priests and a Chaplet of Divine Mercy. All are invited to join us.

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.

The Divine Mercy Prayer Group is every Wednesday beginning at 6:00pm in the Church. All are invited to join us for Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, and Divine Mercy Praises. The Holy Mass is celebrated at 7:00pm on the first Wednesday of every month.

First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Jesus gave to St. Margaret Mary 12 promises for souls devoted to His Most Sacred Heart. Please join us immediately after daily Mass on the First Friday of every month for prayers for the Sacred Heart Devotion.

Padre Pio Prayer Group

The Padre Pio Prayer Group celebrates Mass, prayers and benediction on the first Monday of the month from 7:00-9:00pm. 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 6:00pm in the church (unless it's a holiday, then the meeting will take place the following Monday).

Thank you to all who were able to attend the Padre Pio Relic Tour. This tour was a most holy event with a wonderful mass. It helped mark the 20th anniversary of Padre Pio becoming a Saint by Pope John Paul II. All three relics had been brought from Italy to the United States and to our Parish! It was an honor for our Padre Pio Prayer Group to sponsor these relics and for Saint Bernard of Clairvaux to host the relics, for hundreds of people around the state and other states to visit and venerate.

"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

A special thank you to the friars and those who attended the Mass & Healing Service on September 23, 2022.
