She invites everyone to join together by praying the Rosary with her on ZOOM every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., beginning May 13th, 2020. Those unable to join via ZOOM are encouraged to pray the Rosary on your own on Wednesdays.

f you have special prayer intentions please forward the information to Judy - It is so much easier if you do that ahead of time. If you don't send them before Wednesday, they may be missed.

A Prayer as I Put on My Mask

Creator,
as I prepare to go into the world,
help me to see the sacrament in the wearing of this cloth.
Let it be “an outward sign of an inward grace” –
a tangible and visible way of living love for my neighbours,
as I love myself.

Advent Wreath Lighting Prayer

Today, let us follow our own star to the manger.  Know that by undertaking our strenuous journey to the truth, seeking joy that the world cannot give us, we will be changed in the process.  When we will finally meet Christ and see who He really is, we will never be the same.  We will not be able to go back to “business as usual” but with hope, peace, joy, and love we will share His mission with others.
