Every morning parishioners gather before the 7:30 am Mass (around 6:50 am) to pray the rosary in the church.  All are welcome!

The rosary is one of the most powerful forms of prayer we have.  Through it, we are placed in the hands of Jesus by His loving mother.  Here is what some of the great saints have said about the power of the rosary:

  • “Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day be led astray. This is a statement that I would gladly sign with my blood.” Saint Louis de Montfort
  • “You must know that when you ‘hail’ Mary, she immediately greets you!...If you greet her, she will answer you right away and converse with you!” Saint Bernardine of Siena
  • "Of all prayers the rosary is the most beautiful and the richest in graces…love the Rosary and recite it every day with devotion  St. Pius X
  • "How beautiful is the family that recites the Rosary every evening." by Pope John Paul II
  • "The Rosary is my favorite prayer. A marvelous prayer! Marvelous in its simplicity and its depth." Pope John Paul II
  • "The Rosary is a priceless treasure inspired by God." by St. Louis De Monfort
  • "There is no surer means of calling down God's blessings upon the family... than the daily recitation of the Rosary." by Pope Pius XII
  • “The Rosary is the most excellent form of prayer and the most efficacious means of attaining eternal life. It is the remedy for all our evils, the root of all our blessings. There is no more excellent way of praying." by Pope Leo XIII
  • "Give me an army saying the Rosary and I will conquer the world"  by Pope Blessed Pius IX
  • "If you desire peace in your hearts, in your homes, and in your country, assemble each evening to recite the Rosary. Let not even one day pass without saying it, no matter how burdened you may be with many cares and labors." by Pope Pius XI
  • "Our Lady has never refused me a grace through the recitation of the rosary." by St. (Padre) Pio of Pietrelcina
  • “The greatest method of praying is to pray the Rosary.” Saint Francis de Sales
  • “One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, Our Lady will save the world.” Saint Dominic

Across from the Mass Coordinator’s Desk in the Church entrance, is a book for anyone to write prayer needs. The Loving Spirit Prayer Ministry prays directly to Jesus, Our Lord, who sits at the right hand of God ever interceding for us. If you would like to join these prayer warriors, they meet on Tuesdays at 10:30 am in the Conway Center. Come join them whenever you can! God Bless!

If we meet and you forget me, you have lost nothing;

but if you meet JESUS CHRIST and forget Him,

you have lost everything

Respect for the dignity of every human person, from conception until natural death, is at the heart of our mission of social justice.  There are many grave evils that permeate our culture.  Abortion, euthanasia, contraception and in vitro fertilization are some of the gravest sins against the dignity of life in our culture today.

In addition to boldly speaking out against the culture of death, prayer is one of the greatest avenues we have to help bring about a culture of life.  Please join us every first Monday of the month for a pro-life rosary at 7:30 pm in our church.

This group meets monthly to plan events for the parish on the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in the St. Joseph Basement. 

St. Mary youth have also formed a group, Mime for Life. This group of high school teens act out a tremendously moving skit that supports pro-life. They are willing to travel and perform for other groups. Contact the parish office for more information.

Starting Friday, June 6, we will be offering Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction after the daily Mass. We will be offering this on the first Friday of every month. All are welcome to join us.

The Legion of Mary along with the Blue Army prays the rosary for peace on the first Saturday. They are using the requested form by our Lady of Fatima. Rosary, confession and prayers. The rosary is begun before 7:30 am Mass at around 6:50 am. Confession follows Mass. Everyone is invited to come and join us as we all need prayers.
