Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Thursday, December 8)

(Masses will be celebrated at 9:30 am & 6:30 pm)

HOUR OF GRACE


(from 12:00 to 1:00 pm in the church)


It is my wish that every year, on 8th December, at noon, the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be celebrated. Many divine and bodily graces will be received through this devotion.

Our Lord, my Divine Son Jesus, will send His overflowing mercy if good people will pray continuously for their sinful brother…. it is my wish that the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be made known and spread throughout the world. If anyone is unable to visit his church, yet will pray at home, he will also receive graces through me…. will find a secure heavenly ladder and receive protection and grace through my motherly heart.”

Our Lady has promised she will hear any prayer we make at this time.


SECOND RITE OF RECONCILIATION


An important part of our preparation during the period of Advent is Reconciliation. On Wednesday, 14th December, 2022 at 7:00 pm, the Second Rite of Reconciliation will be held at our parish. There will be a number of priests to assist our parish in the reconciliation


RESOLVE TO ATTEND

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION


Be still and know that I am God.” - Psalm 46:10



Carve out a few extra minutes every week to be still before God in our Adoration Chapel. Quiet your heart that you might hear His hear speak. The more our hearts are inflamed with love for Christ, then charity and mercy will flow from us as we encounter our family, friends, co-workers, neighbours and all who we meet. Come to Him with all your concerns and worries; your hopes and desires; your fears and unmet dreams and place it all before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Quietly sit in His Presence. Gaze upon Him as He tenderly gazes upon you.


Our parish has been blessed to have a Perpetual Adoration Chapel. We also have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament every Wednesday morning after the 8:00am mass with the Cenacle of prayer recited (Marian movement of priests) followed by Benediction at 9:30 am.

Please make time for our dear Lord.
