Daily Prayers before the 9:00AM Weekday Mass
Parishioners gather Monday through Saturday at 8:30AM for special prayers and devotions.
Every Friday after the 9:00AM Mass there is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, where the Eucharist is exposed in a vessel called a monstrance or ostensorium. The faithful may pray in the presence of Our Lord until Benediction at 12:00PM. Please note that when a funeral takes place on Friday morning, Eucharistic Adoration does not take place.
A Novena is a period of nine consecutive days, or one day for nine consecutive weeks, in which prayers are said to obtain special graces, in honor of a particular saint, or to highlight a mystery in Christ’s life. The practice first developed in the seventeenth century, but the spirit of the novena stretches back much further, recalling the period of time (nine days) between the Ascension of Our Lord and the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.
