Neighborhood/Traveling Rosary Inspires Community Prayer
“The rosary is the book of the blind, where souls see and there enact the greatest drama of love the world has ever known; it is the book of the simple, which initiates them into mysteries and knowledge more satisfying than the education of other men; it is the book of the aged, whose eyes close upon the shadow of this world, and open on the substance of the next.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Display the Blessed Mother in your home and invite your Catholic neighbors to pray the Rosary with your family. For your week with the Blessed Mother, contact Beth Smith through the Parish Office.
Charasmatic Prayer Group
In person meetings will resume at St. Michael’s on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8pm beginning August 23. Group meetings provide opportunity to deepen your relationship with the Lord, discern and develop charismatic gifts of the Holy Spirit, and building up the Church. All are welcome. For more information, contact Mary Warren or Monica Choe through the parish office.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is nothing less than a close, private conversation with a living person who is the risen Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. It is about as close as we can come in this life to talking with God face to face. You are important to the Lord. To spend your special hour with Him each Wednesday between 7:30am and 5pm, call the office at 808-326-7771.
