Welcome

May 31st is the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Mighty God, by whose grace Elizabeth rejoiced with Mary and greeted her as the mother of the Lord: look with favor on your lowly servants that, with Mary, we may magnify your holy name and rejoice to acclaim her Son our Savior, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,  one God, now and forever. Amen.

(Collect for the Feast of the Visitation, Church of England)


The Ascension of the Lord

This Thursday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord.  We rejoice that Jesus returns to his heavenly Father to prepare a place for us. As Catholics, we observe this Feast as a Holy Day of Obligation. The Mass schedule is as follows: Vigil Mass on Wednesday, May 29 at 5:30; Thursday, Mass in Church at 8:30 A.M. and 7:00 P.M. There will be a Mass in the school on Thursday at 10:15. All are invited to join our school children in prayer.

Parish First Friday Devotions to the Sacred Heart Beginning on December 7th

Parishioners are encouraged to join together in prayer for 9 consecutive First Fridays to pray for parish unity, healing for the faithful, and wisdom for Bishop Gainer in selecting a new pastor for St. Margaret Mary.  This prayer initiative, which began in October, includes praying the Litany of the Sacred Heart at the end of the First Friday 12:15 Mass, and also includes a First Friday Holy Hour in the Sacred Heart Adoration Chapel from 7 - 8 p.m.  There will be time for private and shared prayer in this way that brings honor to the Sacred Heart as encouraged by our patroness, Saint Margaret Mary.  The First Friday devotion usually includes reception of Holy Communion for nine consecutive First Fridays.  Even if you are not able to be with us in person, please join us in a spirit of prayer.
