Nine Nights of Night Prayer
Our parish is one of eight parishes in the diocese participating in Nine Nights of Night Prayer, November 30 through December 8. This is an opportunity to pray Night Prayer, the short, ancient prayer of the Catholic Church in nine beautiful churches of our diocese. Every night, our church will be open for those who come to church often, those who have never been, and everyone in between. After prayer on December 8, come to the Memorare Center for an ice cream social featuring a custom ice cream flavor inspired by the Virgin Mary. Come join us!
Candidates should attend 9:00 a.m. Mass and then go over to the school gym for activities. The session will end at 12:00 p.m.
All Saints' Day is a Holy Day of Obligation when all Catholics are asked to come to Mass to celebrate our brothers and sisters who are with God in heaven and ask them to help us get there too.
