Welcome

The Friday following the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of the Lord is observed as the Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

 

Prayer of Saint Francis de Sales to

the Sacred Heart of Jesus

May thy heart dwell always in our hearts!
May thy blood ever flow in the veins of our souls!
O sun of our hearts, thou givest life to all things by the rays of thy goodness!
I will not go until thy heart has strengthened me, O Lord Jesus!
May the heart of Jesus be the king of my heart!
Blessed be God.
Amen.

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.
