The Seven Sisters Apostolate – The Seven Sisters Apostolate group began last year when seven women responded to a call to strengthen the Church by ensuring that one hour is prayed each day of the week for the sole intention of a specific priest. Each member commits to an hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week. You may pray at any time on that day in church or at home. This commitment began the week of June 21 and will continue for a period of one year, but can be continued beyond next June if you wish. Please call Debbie Lokar at the parish office if interested or for further information.
Eucharistic Adoration – Eucharistic Adoration has resumed on Mondays. Take the time to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. If interested in a specified hour or if you cannot keep your designated hour, please contact Debbie Lokar at the parish office. “Jesus waits for us in the sacrament of love and you are greatly needed” (Pope John Paul II).
