Parish Life Pictorial

Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

1 Peter 4:8-10

Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Amen.

Communion Antiphon - Mt 10:39
Whoever loses his life for my sake,/ will find it in eternity, says the Lord.

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

St Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Living Above Reproach
In the 1st reading today (2 Tim 2:8-15) St. Paul exhorts Timothy to be "eager to present yourself as acceptable to God, a workman who causes no disgrace, imparting the word of truth without deviation.” Are you living above reproach? Are there any ongoing sins in your life that would bring shame if they were made public? Our world needs people to live above reproach, doing so leads others to Christ. Take a listen

Tonight’s 15:5 Teen Night focuses on Jesus’ call to love, especially in this world where hate fills the air and when we find it difficult to love others.

Pope Francis shares this:

“If a newborn child could speak, he would certainly express the fact that he feels loved by his parents”. And what parents do with the child is what God did with us: He loved us first. And this gives birth to and increases our capacity to love. This is a clear definition of love: we can love God because He loved us first. (Santa Marta, 10 January 2020)

I hope you can join us tonight as we explore this topic and offer prayers for our community and world.

Teens invited on Thursday nights at 7:30 pm for our virtual youth gathering. Teens are asked to signup and then more details on the Zoom meeting will be sent to you. Sign-Up Here:!/showSignUp/60b094facab2aaa8-155
