The Five First Saturdays

The Forgotten Part of the Fatima Message

 

Begging Saturday, March 3, 2018, after the 8:00 am Mass we will begin the Five First Saturday’s Devotion. Our Lady promised Sister Lucia she would “assist at the hour of death, with the grace necessary for salvation, all those who on the first Saturdays of five consecutive months confess, receive Holy Communion, pray a Rosary, and keep her company for a quarter of an hour meditating on the fifteen mysteries with intention of offering reparation.” The intention of this devotion is to console the Immaculate Heart of Mary, offer reparation for the blasphemies and ingratitude of unrepentant sinners and for peace in the world.

 


St. Vincent de Paul Meeting

There will be a St. Vincent de Paul meeting on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in the rectory for anyone interested in attending.
