Rosary Prayer Group Sundays at 8:45am


Join us in praying the Rosary each Sunday at 8:45am in our Community Room.  Each Rosary said with faith is a treasure to Christ and Mary. Each prayer is beautiful and special. They treasure our prayers because we are honoring them as well as loving them. Picturing Mary with a crown of roses is fitting because when we say the Rosary we are acknowledging her place in heaven as the Mother of Christ. Each prayer of the Rosary is a rose that we crown her with adding to her heavenly magnificence.

Come Holy Spirit and let us receive Thy Gifts!

Prayer to receive the Gifts of The Holy Spirit

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who,  before ascending into heaven,  didst promise to send the Holy Ghost  to finish Thy work in the souls  of Thy Apostles and Disciples,  deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me,  that He may perfect in my soul  the work of Thy grace and Thy love.   Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom
that I may despise the perishable things of this world  and aspire only after the things that are eternal,

 the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind  with the light of Thy divine truth,

 the Spirit of Counsel  that I may ever choose the surest way  of pleasing God and gaining Heaven,

 the Spirit of Fortitude  that I may bear my cross with Thee,  and that I may overcome with courage
all the obstacles that oppose my salvation, the Spirit of Knowledge  that I may know God and know myself  and grow perfect in the science of the Saints, the Spirit of Piety  that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable, the Spirit of Fear  that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God,
and may dread in any way to displease Him.  Mark me, dear Lord,  with the sign of Thy true disciples
and animate me in all things with Thy Spirit.  Amen.
