Please Join Us for Morning Rosary
The Rosary is prayed in our Church at 8:00 am (just prior to the 8:30 am daily mass) on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Pray the Rosary and, if you can, please stay for Mass and Holy Communion. What better way to begin your day?
All are invited, and Father Dominic wishes to extend a special invitation to all School and REP parents who drop their children off each morning. Please join us!
It takes just 20 minutes to pray the Rosary, and the spiritual benefits can last a lifetime.

A Good Read
Rediscover the Rosary: The Modern Power of an Ancient Prayer, by Dynamic Catholic’s Matthew Kelly
We live hectic lives in a chaotic world. All this can lead to a confusion that fogs the mind, unsettles the soul, and leads to poor decisions. Amidst such chaos and confusion, we long to hear God’s voice with greater clarity.
God wants to put things in order. He wants to rearrange our priorities. If we let him, we will be happier than we ever thought possible in this lifetime, and finally then we will come to know the peace for which we all yearn, but so few of us ever find. Our Catholic spirituality is constantly inviting us to establish the deep roots of order in our lives, and one of the best ways I know to do that is by praying the Rosary.
The Rosary works. It’s a very powerful way to pray. There is just something about it that settles our hearts and minds. It puts everything in perspective and allows us to see things as they really are. It reaches deep down into our souls and puts us at ease, creating a peace that is rare and beautiful.
