"Evangelization happens when the word of Jesus speaks to people's hearts and minds. Needing no trickery or manipulation, evangelization can happen only when people accept the Gospel freely, as the 'good news' it is meant to be, because of the power of the gospel message and the accompanying grace of God."

First Saturday Rosary
The First Saturday of the month Rosary will start at 4:00 PM allowing it to be finished before the 4:30 PM Mass and still have time for quiet, personal reflection. This will be an ongoing, monthly Rosary.
Power in Prayer
Let’s make time to speak personally to Jesus. Join fellow church members each Wednesday from the comfort of your home, workplace, etc., in spending 10 minutes in prayer anytime day or evening. Enlist your family, a friend, or perhaps you prefer a quite place to meditate. Prayers can be formal or not, including singing or reading scripture. You could offer your work, a kind act, or make a sacrifice as your prayer. We are called to be a holy people (set aside for sacred use). As we focus our mind and heart on Jesus, He transforms us, re-creating us into the ones He designed us to be.
November 19th’s Intention: Drawing Near to Jesus
Simply drawing near to Christ’s loving presence in the Eucharist is a tremendous blessing for our spiritual lives. As Blessed Carlo Acutis once said, when “we face the sun, we become tan … but when we place ourselves in front of the Eucharistic Jesus, we become saints.” BEHOLD THE LAMB OF GOD
Suggested Prayer/Activity: Spend some time sitting with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration or in front of the Tabernacle.
Lord I am not worthy to receive you but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
